Health Services
Covered California + MediCal

Beach Cities residents now have access to health insurance coverage through Covered California. Covered California is a marketplace where individuals and families may get financial assistance to make health coverage more affordable. Residents also can compare and choose health coverage that best fits their needs and budget. Additionally, by law, coverage can no longer be dropped or denied, even if the patient has a pre-existing medical condition or becomes sick.

Open Enrollment Dates:

Covered California Open Enrollment for 2022 will be November 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022.

  • The open-enrollment period for Affordable Care Act marketplaces begins on Nov. 1, and millions of Americans are eligible for more financial help than ever before.
  • Increased financial help builds on the Affordable Care Act to lower premiums throughout all of 2022, and potentially through 2025 with the proposed Build Back Better plan, helping millions of Americans get and stay covered.

BCHD Certified Enrollment Counselors are still available to assist the community with enrollment assistance, counseling, and any questions that consumers may have around Covered California and public health insurance.
