Question: In order to prove that I qualify for premium assistance, I had to upload evidence of my income. I uploaded the required documents a couple weeks ago. How long does the verification process usually take? Should I go ahead and “check out” with a health plan even though I don’t know how much premium assistance I will be getting?
Answer: You can safely assume that you will be getting the subsidy for which you were conditionally approved. Go ahead and select your health plan. Covered California could take up to 90 days to “verify” your income estimate for 2014.
