Renewing Your Health Plan

The renewal and open-enrollment periods for Covered California have ended. They will begin again in the fall of 2019.

When you renew your insurance, you will be able to:

  • Tell us if any of the information you entered in your application has changed.
  • Use the Shop and Compare Tool to find out if you qualify for a lower cost plan. 
  • Find out if your costs have changed.
  • Change your current health plan.

It is important to take a look at your health plan during the renewal period because health plan options and rates could change each year, and you may qualify for a different amount of financial help — especially if things like your income, household size and address have changed since last year. 

To see health plan options and rates, use our Shop and Compare Tool. Then either log in to your Covered California account, find local help, or call us at (800) 300-1506 (TTY: (888) 889-4500).

How to Renew With Medi-Cal

Medi-Cal renewal happens throughout the year, occurring on the anniversary of your enrollment in Medi-Cal.

If members of your household have Medi-Cal, they will receive a Medi-Cal renewal form from their local county human services agency. Complete this form and mail or fax it, along with any information the county requests, to your local county human services agency. You can also renew by visiting your county human services agency in person or by calling the phone number on the renewal notice.

If you lose Medi-Cal coverage, you may enroll in health insurance coverage through Covered California in the special-enrollment period due to a loss of coverage.
