Monday is the open enrollment deadline for Covered California, the state's new health insurance exchange. More than 1 million Californians have already signed up for coverage, the most of any state in the nation.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Emily Bazar, senior writer at the California HealthCare Foundation Center for Health Reporting at the USC Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism
