Question: I am concerned that few private doctors will accept the California Exchange insurance and I will have to go to clinics that only the poorer people without insurance use.
Answer: You should not be concerned. Covered California is a marketplace that offers coverage underwritten by private insurance companies. Providers - doctors, hospitals, etc. - will continue to be contracted with the insurance companies, not directly with Covered California. For example, if a doctor is now part of Blue Shield’s network, in all probability they will continue in Shield’s network within the exchange.
