Covered California is where Californians can get brand-name health insurance under the Patient Protection
and Affordable Care Act. It’s the only place to get federal premium assistance to help buy health insurance
from a variety of insurance companies. That means an individual may qualify for a discount on a health plan
through Covered California, or get health insurance through the state’s Medi-Cal program.
When applying, various factors such as family size, income and immigration status will
determine qualification for a Covered California health plan, Medi-Cal or other program.
The Open Enrollment Period for Covered California typically is from October-January (exact dates TBA), but there are special circumstances where enrollment is allowed during the year and more information can be found at:
