Question: When I purchased my health insurance through Covered California I did not apply for financial assistance. However I think I do qualify, how can I find out and how do I apply for past months.
Answer: You can find out if you qualify for premium assistance by using Covered California's Shop and Compare Calculator. If you discover that you are eligible for a subsidy, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period which would allow you to apply for assistance right now. You cannot recover assistance for past months when you did not request it. This is not a change you can make online. You will have to call Covered California at 800-300-1506.
