eUpdate - March 13, 2014   
Sign up for Health Coverage! 
March 31 is the deadline for Affordable Care Act Enrollment  
If you haven't signed up for health coverage yet, I encourage you to do so by March 31, which is the deadline of the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) open enrollment period. If you don't have health coverage by March 31, 2014 you could face tax penalties.

Fortunately, there are many opportunities in West County to learn about coverage options, and to get help enrolling.
  • Your local library. Enrollment counselors are holding "office" hours at several public libraries to help people get coverage. Check the County Library website for a scroll-down list of sites.
  • March 22 enrollment event from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., at St. Paul Parish Hall, 1845 Church Lane, San Pablo. For information, call 510-232-5931.
  • Of course, you can also get information and enroll in coverage on the Covered California website, a one-stop on-line resource for Affordable Care Act coverage.  Covered California is the State's ACA coverage exchange.  
Covered California offers a range of plans for people and families of all income levels. Counselors also help eligible people enroll in Medi-Cal, the state's health coverage for the low-income and people with disabilities.

Many of these services have bi-lingual counselors - just ask for help in your language.

If you don't use the internet, you can call Covered California at 1-800-300-1506.

Even if you aren't sure if there's a health plan for you, or confused by the health coverage law, please see or call a counselor to learn more.

Remember, the deadline is March 31!
