Covered California

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the
federal law passed in 2010 to provide affordable health
insurance. This historic law will change the way health
insurance companies provide coverage as well as the
way consumers purchase coverage.

To help those without health insurance get covered, the
law also requires each state to set up their own market-
place to offer health insurance or have one provided to
them by the federal government. California has chosen
to create its own marketplace – Covered California.

Please visit the Covered California website to learn more
about your health insurance options and valuable resources
such as a cost calculator to help estimate monthly costs for
premiums and maximum annual out-of-pocket based on
their household size and income.

You may also contact Covered California toll-free at
1-800-300-1506 for enrollment assistance. Interpreters are
available to help you select affordable coverage options.
