CBHN and Covered California

Special Enrollment – Qualifying Life Event

We’ve got you covered. Apply today! CBHN and Covered California want to ensure that all uninsured Californians have access to affordable health insurance.

You can apply for a health plan outside open enrollment (or make changes to your current plan) if you’ve experienced a qualifying life event, usually within the last 60 days.

Qualified Life Events
A qualified life event is a circumstance that has occurred within the last 60 days. The 60 days are counted from the date the application is submitted. Some of the most common life events are:

  • Involuntary loss of health insurance
  • Permanently moved to/within California
  • Had a baby
  • Got married
  • Turned 26 years old
  • Change of household size
  • Domestic abuse
  • Natural disaster

Note: Special Enrollment does not apply to Medi-Cal applicants. These individuals can apply for coverage anytime during the year and do not need a Qualifying Life Event to gain coverage.

How does CBHN partner with Covered California?

CBHN advocates for health equity in all regions of California with the mission to create a healthier Black California. To this end, CBHN has partnered with Covered California to increase access to affordable healthcare with a specific focus on unemployed, underemployed, undocumented, gig workers, beauty stylists, and others who do not have affordable access to healthcare through their employers or parents.

CBHN’s certified enrollers work in the local communities through outreach and onsite signups to enroll people into Covered California programs.
