A Festive Launch For Covered California In Los Angeles
California's implementation of Obamacare, called Covered California, launched today with events heralding the new insurance marketplace across the state. The new database is available online, coveredca.com, though it's been swamped with massive traffic, causing delays. In Los Angeles, officials with Covered California joined community supporters and educators tasked with public outreach ahead of the January 1 deadline, when the plans go live. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
