Covered California

Covered California helps to connect people with name brand health insurance plans via the Affordable Care Act. This program allows families and individuals with low resources to receive financial aid towards insurance premiums. Depending on your income, you may qualify to receive a discount on health care coverage plans or be eligible to receive insurance through your state’s Medi-Cal progam.
