More indications of support for California version of insurance mandate if federal version tossed by high court

The Los Angeles Times‘ Chad Terhune via the Sacramento Bee quotes a key California legislator expressing support for a California version of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s (PPACA) coverage mandate if the federal law’s mandate is ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.  California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones also seems to favor an insurance mandate if the Golden State ultimately moves to put its own in place but doesn’t directly say so in Terhune’s story.

A week earlier, California Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley expressed support for the mandate, which state payer organizations contend is essential to prevent adverse selection in the state’s individual market, the largest in the nation as a percentage of working age adults and their dependents.
