Original Post

As Lisa Aliferis reported on our State of Health blog, California unveiled a revised website on Wednesday for Covered California, the state-run online health insurance marketplace mandated by the Affordable Care Act — aka Obamacare. Part of the update was an online calculator that will give you an estimate of what you’ll pay for health insurance when buying on the online exchange. The exchange opens for business Oct. 1, and your coverage would start Jan 1, 2014. The calculator takes into account the estimated subsidy you’ll be eligible for under the law.
