Coverage Renewed Automatically for Next Year?

By on | No Comments

Question: I have my health insurance with Blue Shield through Covered California. If I want to keep my current plan do I have to do anything during Open Enrollment?

Answer: Blue Shield will automatically renew you for 2020 coverage in the health plan you have now. If your current plan is no longer available, Blue Shield will automatically enroll you into a similar health plan. Even if you have been automatically re-enrolled you can still make changes to your health plan coverage until January 15, 2020.

If you receive premium assistance for your health insurance coverage through Covered California you should validate your enrollment online at or by phone at 800-300-1506 between October 15 and December 15, 2019 to maintain your financial assistance.
