The 2019 Renewal Period
The 2019 Renewal Period is open from October 1, 2018 to December 15, 2018. The renewal period is a good time to:
- Report any household changes, including adding a dependent or a change in your permanent address.
- Call us at 1-855-270-2327 (TTY 711) if you would like to speak with someone about changing your plan. For example, if you are currently enrolled in a L.A. Care Covered Bronze 60 HMO plan and you’re looking for lower deductibles and out of pocket costs, switching to the Silver 70 HMO plan could be beneficial to you based on your health needs.
- Follow the steps below, depending on if you are a member of L.A. Care Covered™ or L.A. Care Covered Direct™.
