California exchange seeks dental, vision plan bids

The California Health Benefit Exchange has posted solicitations for health insurers and managed care companies that want to write dental or vision coverage through the state's new exchange programs.

Notices of issuers' intent to bid on the solicitations are due Wednesday.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) requires state and federal agencies to set up exchanges, or Web-based health insurance supermarkets, by Oct. 1, with the coverage sold through the exchanges to start taking effect by Jan. 1, 2014.

Initially, the exchanges will be open to individuals and small groups.
