Health Insurance: Aetna CVS Health

Aetna is a part of CVS Health and is a new health insurance option with Covered California. Aetna currently serves 34 million across the nation. After joining Covered California, it will begin to reach the following Californian regions:

Aetna is a part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and its plans cover hospitalization, preventive care and mental health services. Benefit from better access to healthcare providers through walk-in MinuteClinic® appointments and 24/7 telehealth services.

Vision Insurance: Superior Vision

If you are a California resident seeking vision insurance coverage, you’re in luck! Superior Vision is also joining Covered California in 2023. This insurance company has been supplying vision benefits to millions of Americans. Everything Superior Vision does for its clients is member-focused, ensuring its services fit your needs where applicable. Superior Vision’s vision insurance plans include routine eye exams and corrective eyewear such as frames, prescription lenses and contact lenses.

Covered California also provides two other vision insurance options — Individual Vision Plans and EyeMed. Adults can enroll with any of these three contracted vision insurance companies. Each provides attractive benefits. If you have children under the age of 19, their vision care is free under your Covered California plan.
