California's new health insurance marketplace is expected to open on time next month.
Despite earlier concerns of a delay, Dana Howard says Covered California is on-track to accept online enrollment as of October 1.
"Last week we completed a series of tests on our computer systems that said that the core functionality of the system is passing those tests," Howard said.
And they'll continue testing as enrollment is expected to increase as we get closer to the effective date of January 1st.
The state hopes to enroll about 1.4 million California's for 2014. Another 1.4 million may be eligible for Medi-Cal.
