Covered California is exploring options for pursuing a 1332 Waiver and held a public forum on February 23, 2016. Written comment can be submitted through March 1st to Please provide as much specificity as possible about your proposal including how it meets the federal standards related to scope of coverage, comprehensiveness of coverage, affordability and federal deficit neutrality. Also state whether you are recommending your proposal for consideration in the near term (i.e., for a 1332 waiver application in 2016) or beyond.
