Background on the Affordable Care Act and Covered California

The Affordable Care Act aims to increase the number of Americans with health insurance and cut the cost of health care. The law provides financial assistance to help individuals, families and small businesses pay for health insurance.

Covered California is the state's online marketplace for purchasing health insurance and getting financial assistance to help pay for it. Those who do not have insurance through their employer or another government program can purchase insurance through this exchange. If your income is limited, you may be eligible for free coverage through Medi-Cal.
