Insurance cancellations by Anthem Blue Cross of California announced earlier this month will reportedly not affect Mendocino County residents who use the state’s Affordable Health Care Act exchange. Anthem is ending its individual coverage in most of the state in 2018, which means the end of coverage for about 60,000 people who use Covered California. Rep. Jared Huffman tells the Ukiah Daily Journal about 5000 people in Sonoma and Marin counties will be affected, but they have more choices on the exchange than Mendocino. Insurance plans for 2018 will be available on the California marketplace starting November 1. Huffman meanwhile has introduced a bill to lower the Medicare eligibility threshold to 50 and offer a buy-in that would avoid a sudden increase in premiums later in life.
