Open Enrollment Starts November 1st
Health insurance can protect you from astronomical costs when a serious accident or illness occurs. Did you know that the average cost for a three-day hospital stay is $30,000? Or that a broken leg can cost up to $7,500? Health insurance helps protect you from unexpected costs like these.
November 1st marks the start of California’s health insurance open enrollment period.
From now until January 31, 2018, you can purchase a plan or renew your coverage through Covered California, our state’s health insurance marketplace.
If you sign up by December 15th, you can get coverage that starts on January 1, 2018.
Coverage could be more affordable than you think. That’s because financial help is available. During last year’s enrollment period, 8-in-10 people qualified for financial help – for most people, that meant they could find insurance premiums between $50 and $100 per month.
