Question: I was offered health insurance by my employer, but missed the open enrollment period. Can I still keep my Covered California coverage with a subsidy?
Answer: Probably not. If the coverage offered by the employer was “affordable” and met minimum value, that employer offer still counts as an offer of minimum essential coverage that prevents a person from being eligible for premium tax credits. A person in this position may enroll in marketplace coverage, but will be ineligible for financial help.
