2016 may be right around the corner, but your opportunity to lock in an affordable and reliable health insurance plan might already be here. With Covered California health care exchange’s open enrollment for 2016 – which begins November 1, 2015 and ends January 31, 2016 – you have a rather short window to sign up for the health care that best fits your needs and the needs of your family. The good news is you won’t have to go it alone.

If you’re new to shopping for health insurance, the process can be intimidating and confusing. And, with the federal mandate requiring that virtually everyone have health care coverage, knowing some of the more important features about the Affordable Care Act, also referred to as Obamacare, could save you from paying a penalty for not having health insurance.
However, there are some viable other options available for consumers who fail to enroll in time or who are unable to afford premiums. Medi-Cal enrollment is year-round for those who meet the requirements and can only pay for no-cost or low-cost coverage.
Medi-Cal offers the same basic Essential Health Benefits mandated by the Affordable Care Act as the health insurance plans available through Covered California, including doctor visits, hospital care, emergency care, health coverage for pregnant women and prescription drugs.
In addition, an individual who misses the open enrollment deadline, but experiences what is considered a “qualifying life event” – such as getting married or having a baby – may still be eligible for health coverage by applying for special enrollment through Covered California.
Because Covered California offers several different types of health insurance, choosing the right plan and coverage is made easier for:
- Pregnant Women
- Small Businesses
Freeway Insurance has been providing exceptional support, expert guidance and low prices to its existing auto insurance customers since 1987. And, now, Freeway Insurance is helping its health insurance customers find affordable, quality health plans through Covered California with the same dedication.
So, no matter whether you’re searching Covered California for students, immigrants, veterans or just for you and your family, there are plenty of Freeway Insurance offices nearby to guide you safely through the health insurance enrollment maze. Why not give either one a call and get a head start?
