When Does My Coverage Renew?

By on | No Comments

Question: I signed up for a Covered California health plan in April after I lost my job. Does my coverage get renewed in January or at the anniversary date next April?

Answer: All Covered California health plans provide coverage based on a calendar year. Coverage under your current plan continues through December. Open Enrollment (November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017) is the time to renew coverage. You can return to the Covered California website or call Covered California to renew coverage yourself so that it continues in 2016. If you don’t act to renew your coverage by December 15, 2016, they will automatically renew coverage for you. If your coverage is automatically renewed, but you would still like to change plans, you can still do so until the last day of Open Enrollment, January 31, 2017.
