Covered California Open

Enrollment Starts Oct. 15th!

The Individual Mandate is Back! 

Governor Gavin Newsome signed into law Senate Bill 78 which goes into effect January 1, 2020. This new law requires California residents to have health insurance or pay a penality on their 2020 state income tax return. This penalty is a minimum of $695 per adult and $347.50 per child.

There are More Subsidies, Premium Assistance, and Options

For 2020, finanacial help is available to more Californians than ever before thanks to new state subsidies and expanded income limits. Individuals and families with annual income up to 600% of the Federal Poverty Level can now get premium assistance. For one person, this is up to $74,940 and for a family of four this is up to $154,500.
