We're offering a new kind of Covered California experience—one defined by ease along with free expert advice.

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 you buy health insurance from the companies shown below. That means you may qualify for a discount on a health plan through Covered California, or get health insurance through the state’s Medi-Cal program. Either way, you’ll have great health coverage.


CoveredCA.com is sponsored by Covered California and the Department of Health Care Services, which work together to help health insurance shoppers get the coverage and care that are right for them.

Being a Covered California Certified Insurance Agent means we are at the forefront of the effort to make affordable health insurance for all Californians a reality. 

Am I eligible for Covered California?

Any legal resident of California can apply for health coverage through the Covered California health insurance marketplace.

When can I apply?

You can only apply for individual Covered California plans during Open Enrollment, which usually begins October 15 and lasts until January 15. The only time you can enroll outside of this period is if you have a special qualifying life event, like loss of a job, marriage, birth of a baby, etc. Think you might be eligible for Medicaid or CHIP? You can apply for these programs at any time of the year, even outside of Open Enrollment.

How do I apply?

If you need a health plan in California, you can shop simply by giving us a call at (800) 650-0922 or visit one of our locations in the Los Angeles and Orange County area. Before you do, make sure to have the following information handy for every member of your household you’d like covered:

  • Full name, as it appears on your Social Security card

  • Birthdate

  • Social Security number (SSN)

  • Residential address

  • Telephone number

  • Email for the primary applicant

  • If you’re a naturalized citizen: The number from your certificate of citizenship/naturalization (located at the upper right-hand corner) and your alien number (located just below, beginning with an “A”)

  • If you’re not a citizen but have a visa/green card/foreign passport: Your alien/USCIS number and I-94/visa/green card/passport number

  • Tax and income information

  • How you file your taxes (i.e., as an individual, family, etc.)

  • All employer names and addresses

  • The projected income earned by each household member who has a job (if you’re self-employed, you’ll need to provide your average monthly income)

  • Social Security and unemployment income

  • Any other additional income, like interest, IRA, alimony, etc.

  • Any deductions on your tax returns


Can I apply for Covered California if I don't have a Social Security number?

Yes. You can apply for Covered California coverage if you’re lawfully present even without a Social Security number (SSN) as long as one of the following is true:

  • You’ve applied for a SSN

  • You don’t qualify for a SSN due to your immigration status

  • You do not want to provide your SSN for religious reasons

If you don’t use a SSN when you apply, you’ll need to provide appropriate documentation within 90 days.

Can I get financial assistance with Covered California?

When you sign up on the Covered California health insurance marketplace, you’ll find out if you qualify for subsidies. You can then use that financial assistance toward the plan you purchase. Just remember, these subsidies aren’t fixed and can fluctuate throughout the year as your income changes.
