Covered California is the California state health insurance marketplace where you can see what health insurance options are available to you and also enroll in a plan. You can also use the marketplace to see if you qualify for Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid program that provides health coverage for low-income residents) and enroll in a Medi-Cal plan if you qualify.

Open Enrollment Period for 2015-2016

All Californians can sign up during open enrollment, which begins Nov. 1, 2015, and continues through Jan. 31, 2016. Many others may be eligible to sign up at any time during the year due to a life-changing event such as getting married, having a child or moving. Medi-Cal enrollment is year-round, as well.
