2-1-1 Helps You Make Sense of the Changes in Healthcare
Did you know: 5.3 million Californians are uninsured or purchase their own insurance?
2-1-1 San Diego is working along side Covered California to help Californians understand affordable health coverage. There are new health care options that may be available to you or your family. The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act's health exchange, also known as Covered California, is beginning enrollment on October 1, 2013, and we are here to help. To learn more about how you or your family can get reasonable health insurance through Covered California, call 2-1-1 to talk to someone 24/7 or view our calendar for upcoming events.
Even those who are healthy today know that they need health insurance just in case. No one can predict when he or she will get sick or have an accident. With the average cost of a three-day hospital stay priced at $30,000, it doesn't make sense to take the gamble of going without health insurance, particularly if you can find it at an affordable price. Covered California will offer a range of health plans so you can choose the one that best meets your financial and health needs.
2-1-1's Partnership with Covered California
2-1-1 staff are Covered California Certified Outreach Educators who will provide callers with one-on-one personalized education about options for coverage, enrollment periods and next steps.
Covered California is part of the Affordable Care Act, and is working to provide affordable health insurance for everyone. We are currently informing people about the benefits to Covered California.
Having insurance is an important way to stay healthy and to pay for health care if you get sick or injured. Health insurance can not only assure your access to care to keep your body healthy, it also protects your peace of mind - you can rest assured that you will have help when you need it most.
Legal residents of California without access to affordable health care insurance through their employer, or another government program will be eligible to purchase health coverage through Covered California.
Visit the Covered California website for more information about health plan benefits and coverage, resources, tools, to enroll and so much more.
