Trouble with Immigration fields on your Covered California application?

If you cannot get your numbers to work, Covered California has some workarounds for the immigration section and for customers who are green card holders.

  • For the Alien Number field, if you cannot get your number to work, please use “999999999”. It doesn’t matter how many “9’s”. Just list “9’s” in field until you are stopped.
  • For the Card Number field, you can use: WAC999999999
  • If you get stuck on the Card Expiration Date, remove the date that is listed and then re-enter the same date.

This should help if you get stuck on the Covered California immigration section.
