Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

A recent federal rule change will allow recipients of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) to sign up for a health plan through Covered California starting Nov. 1, 2024. Eligible DACA recipients can receive financial help if they qualify.

Covered California will have a special-enrollment period that begins on Nov. 1 that will allow DACA recipients to sign up for health insurance. Those who apply in November using this special-enrollment period can have their plan start as early as Dec. 1, 2024.

This special-enrollment period will happen at the same time as Covered California’s open-enrollment period, when qualifying DACA recipients can also enroll in a health plan for the 2025 coverage year.

Visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website for more information.
