One of the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, established federal subsidies to help individual consumers afford private insurance. California embraced the idea that access to affordable care is a right all Americans share and became the first state in the country to create its own health insurance marketplace: Covered California.
Since 2014, when the exchange began, more than 2 million Californians have received medical care thanks to this program. Will you qualify for a subsidy? You may if:
- You meet certain citizenship requirements.
- You are an individual making between 133% and 400% of the federal poverty level.
- You are a small business owner (less than 50 employees), and you want to provide affordable healthcare to your employees.
How do you get the subsidy? Covered California will ensure that any eligible enrollee receives the assistance they deserve. You will find out as part of the application process what you’re approved for and the cost to you so you can make an informed decision about the plan that fits your needs.
With multiple insurance carriers providing plans, you are in the driver seat when determining which plan options are right for you. If you aren’t experienced in evaluating health insurance options or are just unsure of how the plan options will work for your family, don’t worry. You don’t have to go it alone.
