by Kristin Snell, San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center with information from coveredca.comOpen enrollment for 2015 health insurance plans through Covered California began November 15, 2014, and ends February 15, 2015. Covered California was created to help you get health coverage to protect yourself and your loved ones. Your coverage cannot be dropped or denied due to a pre-existing condition. You may be eligible to receive financial assistance through Covered California to make your health coverage more affordable.
MediCal enrollment continues year round. MediCal covers a core set of services, including doctor visits, hospital care and pregnancy-related services, as well as nursing home care for individuals age 21 or older. To be eligible, your annual income must be 138 percent of the federal poverty level or less (in 2013 that would mean an individual who earned $15,856 or less).
For a limited time, while supplies last, each individual applicant or applicant family will receive a ticket for our gift basket raffle or a Family Fun Pack. Please contact us at 292.3174 to schedule an appointment to receive information and application or renewal assistance for affordable health care. You can also visit coveredca.com or c4yourself.com
