Covered California’s Facilitation of Continuous Coverage for Consumers Losing Medi‐Cal

Beginning June 2023, Covered California, the state’s official health insurance Marketplace, will automatically select consumers losing Medicaid coverage into the lowest cost silver plan available to maximize premium tax credit and cost-sharing support. The program will ensure that consumers will not experience a gap in coverage if they effectuate their coverage within a month. Covered California will send customized notices to consumers to explain their plan enrollment and financial assistance and educational materials related to coverage, plan benefits, and key insurance terms. A dedicated website will be made available for consumers to direct them to their pre-selected plan and effectuation options, as well as a specialized phone support system with an interactive voice response menu and live assistance.
