Covered California agents still not reaping the benefits of a paycheck

Certified insurance agents who helped sign up 40 percent of individuals in California’s new health care plan say they are late receiving commissions.

The Los Angeles Times reports the agents enrolled a half-million people but are souring on the work due to late payment and inefficiencies in the system.

Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California, has apologized for the exchange’s poor service.

In a written report last week, he says the state still owes commissions to agents for enrolling small employers going back to June and hopes to make those payments next month.

The state also owes 2,200 agents about $2 million for signing Californians up for Medi-Cal and those payments might not come until January.
