This week, Covered California announced that the preliminary total of enrollments in Covered California health insurance plans through Jan. 15, 2014 is more than 625,000.
In addition, including patients “rolled over” from the Low Income Health Program, over 1.2 million Californians were enrolled in Medi-Cal under ACA expanded eligibility.
Community Health Centers, including the hard working staff of SFCCC partner clinics, make up half of the certified enrollment counselors statewide and are responsible for more than half of new enrollments.
While Covered California’s open enrollment period ends March 31, 2014, enrollment in Medi-Cal is ongoing. We are making a dent in the number of uninsured Californians, but we have just begun!
