Individual Health Insurance Apply Online

The quickest way to enroll for a Covered California individual or family plan is to apply online

Here are the quick and easy steps to follow:

  1. Get a quote
  2. Review the plans
  3. Select the plan
  4. Click the apply button

The online application will appear. To complete, you’ll need the following information.

For everyone who is listed on your tax return, even if they are not enrolling:

  •  Name
  •  Address
  •  Date of Birth
  •  Social Security Number

Also, you will need to enter your current household income. So be prepared with current paystubs, etc. that may help you with this information. If you have any questions about the online insurance application, please contact Health for California at (707) 571-7590.

After you complete the application, your next step will be to pay the first month’s premium. Note that you are not officially enrolled until payment is received by the carrier. You do not need to pay the premium right at the moment. To pay, you may wait to receive the invoice, or contact the insurance company about three weeks after completing the application form; this will give them time to process your application.
