Covered California–– California’s new Health Benefit Exchange –– represents a unique opportunity for health plan providers to increase market share and gain new customers … but timing will prove critical.

When Covered California goes into effect (January 2014, with pre-enrollment beginning October 2013), thousands of consumers and small businesses will be newly eligible to purchase health insurance. This pool of newly eligible consumers will be largely LEP (Limited English Proficient), which means that health plan providers must have a solid translation strategy in place before Covered California goes “live.”

What do these LEP customers want as they shop for coverage through Covered California? They need to understand benefits information; compare plan offerings; and make educated choices regarding costs, benefit options, quality, value and more.
