WELCOME TO COVERED CALIFORNIA
Covered California™ is a place where you can compare and shop for private health insurance plans and get financial assistance to pay for health coverage if you qualify
Who is Eligible for Covered California?
All U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and noncitizens lawfully present in California may apply for health care through Covered California.
Who is Not Eligible for Covered California?
If you are not lawfully present in California, you are not eligible for a Covered California plan. However, you can still apply through Covered California to find out if you are eligible for Medi-Cal or to find coverage for family members who are lawfully present. For example, if your child is a U.S. citizen, you can apply on his or her behalf. You only need to provide information on immigrant status for family members applying for coverage.
What if I’m From a Mixed Immigration Status Family?
If your family includes some noncitizens that are not lawfully present, you can still apply for health care through Covered California.
When applying, remember that family members who are not lawfully present are not eligible for Covered California health plans, but may be eligible for Medi-Cal.
Your Immigration Status Will Be Kept Confidential
All immigration information provided to Covered California will be kept private and secure. It will not be shared with or used by any immigration agency to enforce immigration laws.
Signing Up for Covered California Will Not Affect Your Immigrant Status
In general, receiving help to pay for a Covered California health plan or receiving coverage through Medi-Cal will not affect immigration status or the chances of becoming a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the U.S.
