What will the Covered California Application be like?
Applications will not include any medical questions, but rather, questions related to your income and the people listed on your income tax return. This will help Covered California determine if you or your family qualify for financial assistance, and if anyone in the household qualifies for insurance through the Medi-Cal program.
What will the Covered California Small Business Application for the Group Exchange be like?
The California Small Business Exchange application is similar to current enrollment forms for small group health insurance. You will need to provide contact information as well as information about your business and your employees. There will continue to be no denials for small groups, so the main point of the application is to prove that your small business is valid and qualifies for group coverage.
