The new Affordable Care Act is making it possible for residents to find affordable health care plans that fit both their budget and needs. Each state has their own online marketplace, called an exchange, where residents can find which health care plans they qualify for. Covered California is the online market place where Californians are able to find and apply for affordable health care plans. This online exchange makes it possible for those seeking health coverage to compare plans side-by-side and determine which plan is best for them. Your certified insurance broker at Sackett & Associates can help with this process.
According to LA Health Coverage, it is estimated that 5.3 million Californians are eligible to enroll in Covered California for their health insurance needs. Almost half of those eligible will also be eligible for tax subsidies to help cover their cost of health insurance.
Those who applied through Covered California before December 23, 2013, coverage began on January 1, 2014. Open enrollment is still available through March 31, 2014.
