By on | No Comments

Question: If employer drops health insurance when can you apply for covered California?

Answer: The law says that you have a 60 days from the date your employer-based coverageends to apply for individual health insurance coverage. In order to avoid a gap in coverage, you can apply for Covered California coverage up to 45 days prior to the date your employer-based coverage ends. For example, if your coverage were to end July 30th, you could apply as early as June 16th for an August 1st effective date.
