In its POLITICO Pulse weekday update feature, POLITICO reported on L.A. Care's enrollment growth amidst California's overall decrease in numbers in "Looking closer: Enrollment falls slightly in California".
The slight decline is seen in California as a win considering the contentious year for the ACA marketplaces and the volatile nature of individual coverage, POLITICO's Victoria Colliver reports from Sacramento.
And some carriers had growth — like L.A. Care Health Plan, which saw gross signups triple, due to the plan’s price points and some marketplace changes in the Los Angeles County market.
