What is Covered California?
Covered California is a marketplace for people and small businesses to help them find out if they are eligible for financial help and to help them buy health insurance, including Medi-Cal.

The Law: The Affordable Care Act
As of 2014, all American citizens and legal residents are required by law to have health insurance, unless they are exempt, and failure to do this will result in a penalty. This is called often called “The Mandate”, and all Covered California health insurance plans meet the benefit requirements set out by it. You are not limited to Covered California plans, however, and others outside of the California Health Insurance Exchange will meet the requirements of “The Mandate”
Having a Life-Changing Event?
You may be able to enroll outside of Covered California’s open-enrollment period if you have certain extenuating circumstances.
