Covered California Enrollment Update

Covered California will allow consumers to apply for health coverage from Feb. 23 to April 30 if they claim to have been unaware of the new tax penalty for not having insurance.

The original open enrollment period went from Nov. 15 to Feb. 15.

For the first time this year, people filing taxes this year may be hit with a penalty for not having health insurance. The fine is based on personal income.

If you are a consumer who has been unaware of the new tax penalty for not having medical insurance and you would like more information about the Covered California program, you may contact our office at 858-361-0734, or contact the Covered California Service Center at 800-300-1506.

California Assembly Bill 1838 lets doctors graduate faster

State of California Governor Brown signed legislation recently that will allow students at accredited medical schools in California to complete their education in three years instead of four. The goal of Assembly Bill 1838 is to meet the high demand for doctors that has been created by federal health care reform. Accelerated educational programs focus on the achievement of individual and academic skills for students who demonstrate a high level of scientific and medical understanding. Currently California faces an extreme shortage of trained medical residents and physicians. The bill takes affect in January 2015. This bill is considered an important step in addressing California’s primary care physician shortage.
