Insurance & Cost Saving Info
Health Insurance Enrollment
Having insurance, and a local primary care provider (physician or nurse practitioner) makes it easier to succeed in school. Data about college student success supports this statement.
You can generally buy marketplace health insurance only during the annual Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment for 2017 coverage starts November 1, 2016 and end January 31, 2017. If you qualify for Medi-Cal (making $16,105 or less for a single adult; $32,913 for a family of 4), you can apply at any time.
Some people qualify to apply outside the enrollment period. Qualifying events include life changes like: getting divorced, married; having a baby or adopting; losing coverage because you turned 26, left your job, or your job benefits were reduced.
The ARC Health Center staff can offer more information on signing up for health insurance. Please call us at (916) 484-8383 or come in for further details.
