Covered California SHOP Small Group Plans Announced

Today Covered California released a list of carriers who will offer plans inside of the SHOP Small Group Health Exchange beginning in January 2014.

I have links below to the information at Covered California.  Six total insurance carriers for the entire state, 3 plans in LA Metro and 3 here in Santa Clara County.

The six "finalists" for SHOP include:     

*Blue Shield of California
*Kaiser Permanente
*Health Net of California 
*Western Health Advantage
*Chinese Community Health 
*Sharp Health Plan

Conspicuously absent from the Covered California small group SHOP exchange are national carriers Aetna, UnitedHealth and Anthem (Anthem Blue Cross CA is a subsidiary of Anthem/Wellpoint).
