Need Health Coverage?

During these challenging times, we are even more committed to helping everyone get access to quality healthcare.

Covered California™ has extended the Special Enrollment Period to assist those who have lost a job or lost income due to COVID-19, the current state wildfire emergency or the overall economic downturn.

Special Enrollment also continues to be available for those who experience other qualifying life events.

If you need insurance right away, you can apply for health care coverage under Special Enrollment until November 30. Financial assistance is still available. Find out how L.A. Care can provide coverage for you, your family and loved ones.

Need Financial Assistance?

Even more help is here for you in 2021. State subsidies make many more Angelenos eligible for financial assistance, including families of four making up to $157,200.

Approximately 90 percent of people enrolled in Covered California receive financial assistance to help them pay for their health coverage. This is primarily through a tax credit, which can be applied throughout the year to lower your premiums, or claimed at tax time.

Please call us at 1.855.222.4239 (TTY 711) and we’ll help see if you qualify.
