Health Insurance: What You Need to Know
The Affordable Care Act (also referred to as Obamacare) requires United States citizens to be covered by health insurance or pay a penalty. Depending on your income level, that insurance may be subsidized. If you already have health insurance through your employer, you are not required to make changes.
- If you are uninsured and you are a California resident, you may visit the Covered California Website or call for assistance over the phone. Covered California will help you determine whether you qualify for MediCal or subsidies.
