Canceling Your Plan
If you need to cancel your health or dental plan, you can do so by logging into your Covered California account.
Covered California requires at least 14 days advance notice to process this request. It is strongly recommended that you request plan termination to be effective at the end of the month. For example, to end coverage on June 30, you would need to call Covered California by June 16 to request the cancellation of your plan.
It is not recommended to request a mid-month termination. This is because your health or dental insurance company is not obligated to refund prorated premiums. So if you call on June 1 and request to cancel your plan on June 15, your insurance company may not refund you for the remaining days of June.
Additionally, you may also have a gap in health coverage because your next health plan or dental plan will probably start on the first day of the next month. For these reasons, if you need to terminate your plan, it’s highly recommended to request a cancellation to be effective at the end of a month.
If you need to cancel your health or dental plan with fewer than 14 days advance notice, please call the Covered California Service Center at (800) 300-1506 or contact your health or dental insurance company directly. These requests are handled on a case-by-case basis.
