CalFresh Benefits & Healthcare Coverage
Health insurance from Covered California or
Covered California is the state’s health insurance marketplace where Californians can find affordable, high-quality insurance. Being covered is the best plan, especially when it comes to health insurance. Consumers can purchase health insurance from well-known, brand-name carriers, and most receive financial help to assist in paying their monthly premiums.
Health insurance premiums through Covered California are based on an enrollee’s age, where they live (their ZIP code), their household size, their projected household income, and the health plan and benefit level they select. See which health plans are available by calling us or emailing us!
Covered California uses the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to determine an individual’s annual household income and household size. Call or email one of our Covered CA Certified Enrollment Counselors to help you estimate your percentage of FPL, and to see the cost of plans in your area and find out whether you qualify for financial help or free or low-cost Medi-Cal.
