Covered CA, CA’s health insurance exchange opened enrollment at 8 AM this morning. Uninsured Placer County residents will be able to apply for affordable health care coverage through three new programs - Medi-Cal Expansion for lower income single persons and couples, tax credits and subsides for middle income individuals and families through the Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) program and SHOP for small businesses.
Placer County Human Services is ready to take calls and on line applications from Covered CA of those eligible for the Medi-Cal Expansion and is ready to help anyone who walks into our offices. We have also partnered with six of our community based and faith based local agencies to assist anyone needing help with information and applying. Attached is a flyer that includes contact information for Covered CA, Human Services and our six partner agencies.
