If you experience a qualifying life event, you can enroll in a Covered California health insurance plan outside of the normal open-enrollment period. Most special enrollment periods last 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event.
For most qualifying life events, your coverage will start on the first day of the following month after you select a plan. CBHN and Covered California want to ensure that all uninsured Californians have access to affordable health insurance. Everyone can benefit from increased financial help included in the American Rescue Plan. The American Rescue Plan is the landmark federal law passed earlier this year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recession it has sparked.
If none of these qualifying life events apply, you should still apply using “None of the above,” because you may be eligible for Medi-Cal or the Medi-Cal Access Program (MCAP) for pregnant women based on your income. Regardless of which life event you select, your application will still be reviewed for coverage through Medi-Cal and MCAP.

CBHN Mission and Partnership with Covered California
The California Black Health Network (CBHN) advocates for health equity in all regions of California for the purpose of providing policy analysis, research and training that promotes best practices, which supports the creation of optimal conditions needed to sustain healthy Black people.
Fulfilling our mission to create a healthier Black California led CBHN to partner with Covered California. For several years, this partnership has allowed the organization to actively promote health care among Black people specifically in Orange, San Bernardino, Sacramento, and San Diego counties. We aim to reach the unemployed, underemployed, undocumented, gig workers, beauty stylists, and others who do not have affordable access to healthcare through their employers or parents.
