Effective March 20, 2020, anyone uninsured and eligible to enroll in health care coverage through Covered California can sign up through the end of June. The Department of Health Care Services announced new steps to help those eligible for Medi-Cal sign up easily and get immediate coverage.
The moves come amid widespread disruption in the lives and livelihoods of Californians as public health officials seek to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All medically necessary screening and testing for COVID-19 are free of charge, and all health plans available through Medi-Cal and Covered California offer telehealth options. These actions build on increased state subsidies and the implementation of a state penalty, both of which took effect in January 2020.
If you would like to enroll, or have any questions about your options, give Core Columbia a call at 619-259-6905. We are working remotely and ready to take your call.
