Renew your plan for 2018 from October 2017 through Dec. 15, 2017, for coverage
beginning Jan. 1, 2018
It is important to take a look at your health plan during the renewal period
because plan options and rates could change each year, and
you may qualify for a different amount of financial help — especially if things like your income, household size and address
have changed since last year. Renewal is also a great time to update your
information with Covered California and shop for new coverage.
To see your health plan options and rates, use our
Shop and Compare Tool. Then either sign in to your Covered California online account, contact
a Certified Insurance Agent or Certified Enrollment Counselor, or call
Covered California at (800) 300-1506 (TTY:  889-4500) to make the change.
If you decide to shop for a new plan, sign in to your account before using
the Shop and Compare Tool so that your selection can be saved. If you
add a plan to your shopping cart before you are signed in, your selection
may not be saved.
This year, Covered California offers a provider search tool to help consumers
find health insurance plans with the doctors they want.

As part of national health care reform, almost all Americans are required
to have health insurance as of Jan. 1, 2014 or risk a tax penalty. The
goal is to make coverage more available and affordable for those who do
not have health insurance or have limited coverage.
Individuals and families may either qualify for private insurance coverage
available through Covered California's health insurance exchange or
for state-sponsored Medicaid coverage. A single streamlined application
is used to identify the best coverage based on the individuals and/or
Private insurance coverage
The Covered California health insurance marketplace opens November 1, 2017
through January 31, 2018 to enroll those who qualify for premium subsidies
and reduced out-of-pocket expenses or those who would like to purchase
coverage for 2018. When open enrollment is closed, you can enroll in a
Covered California health insurance plan only if you experience a
qualifying life event. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center can help you learn more about enrolling
in an Affordable Care Act health plan.
If you qualify for MediCal, you may apply at any time throughout the year.

website or by contacting our Eligibility Services department.
