Open Enrollment is HAPPENING SOON

Open enrollment for 2016 health insurance plans through Covered California will begin on November 1, 2015. For those who shopped on the marketplace last year, keep in mind that this is half as long as the first enrollment period! To apply, visit

Remember, if you like your current plan, AND your personal information has not changed (i.e. income stayed constant, no marriages, or childbirths, etc.), AND when you first enrolled last year you selected the option allowing Covered CA to automatically check your income for between 1-5 years, in most cases you will be AUTOMATICALLY reenrolled in your current plan with coverage starting January 1, 2015. However, I encourage you to check out Covered California’s website to shop around because it’s likely you’ll be able to find a better deal! Don’t wait until the last minute to #GetCovered!

If you you have questions, visit or call the Covered CA Service Center at 1-800-300-1506, Mon. – Fri. from 8AM to 8PM Pacific and Sat. from 8AM to 6PM Pacific.

You can also call my District Office at 650-342-0300 Mon. – Fri. from 9AM to 6PM Pacific.
