Question: What will happen to my Kaiser Permanente coverage in January 2014?
Answer: Your current Kaiser health plan will not meet the requirements of a qualified health plan in 2014, so you will have to make a change. Your local agent, a Kaiser customer service rep, or a Covered California Assister will be there to help you when the time comes to make the change (between 10.1.13 and 12.31.13). The first thing they will check is whether your income makes you eligible for free coverage through Medi-Cal or subsidized coverage through Covered California. Regardless, you will be able to choose a plan from Kaiser if that is your preference.
