Covered California 

Exclusive Savings 

Covered California is the only place where you can get help paying for your plan. Most of our customers get help paying for their coverage. 

Everyone Can Apply 

Anyone can apply for coverage when open enrollment begins in the fall, or right now if you’ve experienced a certain life change. You won’t be turned away for having a pre-existing condition. Apply even if you or someone in your family is not a U.S. citizen

Here for the Long Haul 

While health insurance might be a topic of debate in Washington, Covered California is here to stay. 

Open to All 

All kinds of people have plans through Covered California. They may be self-employed or working somewhere that doesn’t offer health insurance. Even if you’re between jobs for only a few months, we’re here for you. 

A Competitive Marketplace 

Prices have been negotiated down to get you the best deals. Eleven leading health insurance companies sell plans through Covered California. The same comprehensive benefits you’d get in the private market, but better deals since carriers are competing. 


Pay Nothing Or Pay a Low Cost

Many members have no monthly payments, copays or deductibles for many plans through Medi-Cal. Some households will see affordable costs, such as a low monthly premium. 

It’s Popular 

Ninety percent of Medi-Cal members rate Medi-Cal as a “good” or “very good” program, according to a recent survey conducted by the California Healthcare Foundation.   

Brand-Name Insurance 

Your plan through Medi-Cal is offered by trusted health insurance companies. You can visit top-rated doctors and leading hospitals.  

For People From All Walks of Life 

Children, pregnant women and individuals and families with low-enough incomes are all eligible for Medi-Cal. If you become eligible, you can apply any time of year. 

Same Benefits as Private Insurance 

Plans through Medi-Cal have the same benefits and quality standards as those available through an employer or an insurance marketplace. 

A Single Application 

Apply for both Medi-Cal and Covered California through the same application.
