Covered California’s special enrollment period now open!

If your clients missed out on open enrollment, now is the time to get them coverage!

President Biden signed an executive order which includes a provision to create a COVID-19 special enrollment period (SEP). Because of this, Covered California established a SEP from February 1, 2021 to May 15, 2021 to give California residents another window to sign up for health care coverage.

This new SEP will allow uninsured individuals to sign up for coverage without having a qualifying life event such as recent loss of coverage or moving. Anyone who otherwise meets Covered California’s eligibility requirements can sign up for coverage during this window.

Members who are not happy with their current carrier can also switch plans during SEP.

Not appointed? Get appointed through Dickerson during this SEP!

For more information, please contact Sally Saracay (sally@dickerson-group.com).
