Can I Still Change Health Plans for 2017?

By on | No Comments

Question: I wanted to shop for new coverage for 2017, but didn’t get around to it yet. Meanwhile, Covered Cal;ifornia automatically renewed my current policy. Can I still make a change?

Answer: Yes. If you pick a new plan by January 15, coverage under the new plan will take effect on February 1. If you pick a new plan between January 16 and January 31, coverage under the new plan will take effect March 1. In order to avoid a gap in coverage, you will have to pay the premium for your current policy until your new coverage takes effect.
