As a member of L.A. Care Covered™ not only will you be able to take advantage of L.A. Care’s competitive rates, you may also qualify for financial assistance to help pay for your coverage. As a matter of fact, ninety percent of people enrolled in Covered California™ receive financial assistance to help them pay for their health coverage. Below are the two main types of financial assistance offered through Covered California™.
Help with monthly premiums
Get help with paying your monthly premiums with premiums tax credits, also known as Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC). To be eligible for premium tax credits, your income must be at or below four times the Federal Poverty Level. To find out if you are eligible for premium tax credits, please review the income guidelines.
Help with Deductibles, Copays, and Coinsurance
In addition to premium tax credits, you may also be eligible for cost-sharing reductions (CSR) to help pay for out-of pocket costs. Out-of-pocket costs include deductibles, co-insurance, and co-pays which are fees charged when you get care. CSRs are special in that they are only available at the Silver Plan metal level. To find out if you are eligible for cost-sharing reductions, review the income guidelines.
