Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Open Enrollment
In Richmond, we have over 20,000 uninsured people, many of whom could not previously afford coverage or were denied it due to a preexisting condition. We are working to change this statistic.

Open Enrollment for Covered California is open through March 31, 2014. To begin your enrollment, please call the Covered California's telephone help line at 1-800-300-1506 or visit the Covered California website at Interpreters in multiple languages are provided on the telephone help line. 

A few important things to know: 
  • Open Enrollment is through March 31; you must enroll by March 31 to have coverage.
  • will allow consumers to make apples-to-apples comparisons of plans before enrolling, including premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Many Californians will qualify for financial assistance to help make premiums more affordable. 
  • Covered CA recommends having the following household information available when enrolling: contact information for all household members applying for coverage, ID numbers such as social security or immigration information, income and tax filing status.
