Existing law, the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, requires each state to, by January 1, 2014, establish an American Health Benefit Exchange that makes available qualified health plans to qualified individuals and qualified employers, as specified, and meets certain other requirements. Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of health care service plans by the Department of Managed Health Care and the regulation of health insurers by the Department of Insurance.

This bill would, contingent on the enactment and operation of AB 1602, establish the California Health Benefit Exchange (the Exchange) within state government. The bill would require the Exchange to be governed by a board composed of the Secretary of California Health and Human Services, or his or her designee, and 4 other members appointed by the Governor and the Legislature in a specified manner and would enact other related provisions with respect to the governance of the Exchange. The bill would also require the board of the exchange, or the California Health and Human Services Agency, if a majority of the board has not been appointed, to apply for and receive federal funds for purposes of establishing the Exchange.

The bill would require the Director of the Department of Managed Health Care and the Insurance Commissioner to review an Internet portal developed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services and to jointly develop and maintain an electronic clearinghouse of coverage available in the individual and small employer markets if the federal Internet portal does not adequately achieve certain purposes.
