Covered California Application - A Step-by-Step Guide
Starting the Online Application
If you are uncertain about your household size, the general rule is: “If you file income taxes together, you buy Covered California coverage together”. Each household member, in this case John and his wife Janet will complete personal information
John is employed and his income is in the form of wages while Janet, his wife, has self-employed income for the her rental property. Finally the income summary totals up the income for the Doe household
The enrollment system determines that based on their income, John and Janet are eligible for advance premium tax credits (APTC) and and cost sharing reductions (CSR). At the bottom right of the eligibility confirmation pages elect “Choose a Health Plan”.
The “Eligibility Results” page summarizes your health plan selection, net premium due, and effective date of coverage.
