Covered California

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Covered California* is a private health insurance exchange that was established through Affordable Care Act legislation for individuals and families not eligible for Medi-Cal. This program allows California residents to purchase quality health insurance by providing tools, including a website, to compare different insurance plans to fit individual and family needs. The cost of each insurance plan is based on certain factors, including family size and income.
