Healthcare and health plans have risen in the public consciousness as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known, and often referred to, as Obamacare. In California, the state health exchange providing these plans under the ACA is called CoveredCA. Many working Americans have some form of group healthcare made available through their employer. Those not so fortunate now have access to the plans offered by CoveredCA, available through our affiliated agency www.germaniinsurance.net.
