FOR THE RECORD

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

Cov­ered Cal­i­for­nia: In the Aug. 2 Business sec­tion, an ar­ti­cle about a rate in­crease for Cal­i­for­nia’s Af­ford­able Care Act health plans said that if fed­eral pay­ments to health in­sur­ance com­pa­nies are stopped, peo­ple who buy sil­ver-tier plans would have to pay an ex­tra sur­charge of 12.4%. If those pay­ments end, pre­mi­ums would in­crease 12.4%, but most con­sumers prob­a­bly would not have to pay more be­cause sub­si­dies also would in­crease, of­fi­cials said.
