With just days away from the March 31 enrollment deadline, Covered California is partnering with various organizations to host enrollment events at libraries and other venues throughout the Bay Area. The enrollment events will offer free, in-person assistance to consumers before the March 31 enrollment deadline. 

Most of the events will have Certified Enrollment Counselors and Certified Insurance Agents available who speak English and Spanish, and many speak multiple languages. Families with mixed immigration status are encouraged to attend and apply for their family members who have satisfactory immigration status. To be eligible for premium assistance, the applicant or applicant’s parent or guardian must file taxes in 2015 for the 2014 tax year. 

Covered California enrollment reached more than 1 million in mid-March, with 1,018,315 people applying for coverage and selecting health insurance plans for themselves and their family members through the state health benefit exchange.

 Earlier this week, Covered California announced that individuals who start an online application by 11:59 pm on March 31, 2014 will have until 11:59 pm on April 15, 2014 to complete an application and select a health plan.

You can view other Covered California upcoming community events at www.coveredca.com/events.  In addition to the events above, enrollment can be done online at www.CoveredCA.com, over the phone with a Covered California Service Center representative at (800) 300-1506, by mail using the paper applications available online at https://www.coveredca.com/individuals-and-families/, in person at county human and social services departments, or in person with a Covered California Certified Insurance Agent or Certified Enrollment Counselor at https://www.coveredca.com/enrollment-assistance/.
