Enroll “On or Off” of the Covered California Exchange … Enrolling Inside the Covered California Exchange is typically for the person or family who qualifies for a subsidy (premium discount) due to their household income. Individuals and families who do not qualify for a state subsidy, will usually enroll outside of Covered California (the plans are the same) although the application process is much quicker because you don’t have to state your income totals.
If you household income is between 138% up to 400%, you and your family may qualify for a lower premium (subsidy).
Please call anytime, I can help determine if you qualify for a premium discount and can help you enroll right over the phone. Or we can discuss your options.
