Health Insurance Waiting Period

The California Senate has a bill that was signed into law regarding California Health Insurance in August of 2014. California had previously put into place a 60 day waiting period. Under the Affordable Care Act/ Obamacare the Federal Government had put into place a 90 day waiting period. Bill SB1034 aligns California with the Federal waiting period.
