Affordable Health Insurance for California Consumers

With approximately 39 million people, California ranks as the most populous state in the United States. Keeping a diverse group of people healthy with affordable health care options has been California's ongoing challenge. That is why the Marketplace for private and small group medical insurance in California plays a significant role in maintaining happy, healthy individuals.

The California Health Exchange

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Obama Care California brought a new solution of affordable California medical insurance to the golden state through the state-based exchange, Covered CA. Through the Covered California website, qualified individuals and families can sign up and receive subsidies through the form of an up-front tax credit to help them pay for their medical coverage. This enables thousands of qualified Californians to obtain inexpensive, if not the cheapest health plans available from some of the best insurance companies in the state.

Purchasing California health insurance through the State Exchange is like going to an online shopping mall. State approved Obama Care California health plans include carriers such as Blue Shield of California, Anthem Blue Cross, Kaiser Permanente and others. Benefit packages include Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels of coverage that can be viewed in an apples-to-apples comparison. Premiums range from cheap to more expensive depending on the level of coverage desired.

Through the dedicated efforts of many California health insurance agents, navigators and assisters, our state experienced a drop in the number of those uninsured. From 2013 to 2014 the number of uninsured went from 15% to 10% (Kaiser Family Foundation State Health Facts for California). There are still more people to reach, but as these numbers prove, consumers are hearing Obama Care California’s message that… “It isn’t just health care, it’s life care.”
