Covered California

Lost your job? You can get health coverage!

Since the beginning of the coronavirus emergency, millions of Californians have filed for unemployment benefits, including many who lost their job-based health coverage. If your job was affected by COVID-19, or if you lack income because your hours were cut or if you're no longer working, Covered California is here for you.

Can I get health insurance now?

Yes. You do not have to wait for open enrollment. A special-enrollment period is underway now that allows you to enroll in a health plan until July 31, 2020. After July 31, 2020, you will need to experience a Qualifying Life Event in order to apply for health insurance coverage. For information, please visit here.

How do I enroll?

Call us at (800) 650-0922 and compare coverage options and costs. Begin by estimating your annual household income to see if you can get financial help. Next, choose a health plan that is the best fit for you and your family. Make your first payment and you are covered.

Once you start the application, you’ll either qualify for low-cost or no-cost Medi-Cal, or depending on your estimated income, you’ll have the option to choose from specific health plans offered through Covered California, likely with financial help to pay your premium.

Types of Financial Help

Covered California offers three types of financial help:

  1. Federal Tax Credits

    Federal tax credits reduce the cost of your monthly premium. It’s also called the Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC).

  2. State Subsidy

    The state subsidy reduces the cost of your monthly premium.

  3. Cost-Sharing Reductions

    Cost-sharing reductions are subsidies that reduce your out-of-pocket costs, such as copays, coinsurance and deductibles.



Federal Tax Credits and the State Subsidy

To qualify for federal tax credits and the state subsidy, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or be lawfully present in the United States.

  • Not have access to affordable, minimum-value health insurance through an employer.

  • Not be eligible for other public health coverage, including full-scope Medi-Cal, premium-free Medicare Part A or military coverage.

  • File taxes for the year that you will receive premium assistance.

  • File taxes jointly if you are married.

  • For federal tax credits, have an annual household income between 100 and 400 percent of the federal poverty level.

  • For the state subsidy, have an annual household income between 0 and 138 percent or over 200 and up to 600 percent of the federal poverty level.


Cost-Sharing Reductions

Cost-sharing reductions are subsidies that lower your out-of-pocket costs when you get health care, including your copays, coinsurance, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximum. Cost-sharing reductions are available to those who are eligible for premium assistance and have an annual household income up to 250 percent of the federal poverty level. If you qualify, all Silver-level plans displayed to you will include cost-sharing reductions. You must choose a Silver plan to receive reduced cost-sharing.

Health insurance through Covered California just got more affordable.

The state of California is making new financial help available to almost a million Californians, many for the first time. Ninety percent of people who have signed up with Covered California get financial help, and you could be one of them. You could even qualify for low-cost or free health coverage through Medi-Cal. Even if you’ve checked before, check again to see if you’re eligible.
