Consumers who are currently enrolled in CC can renew

 now through December 15, 2015.  See further clarifications below:


What are the important deadlines for renewing my plan?

The current renewal period ends on December 15, 2014. This is the time to review your account information, make changes, and select a different health plan if you wish. If you take no action, you will keep your current health plan, with the exception of health plans no longer available in 2015. When you renew, you will receive confirmation of your renewal from Covered California and an invoice from your health insurance company. You must pay your premium by the due date on the bill for coverage to start January 1, 2015.



What happens if I don’t do anything?

If you are not required to make a change and do not take any action to renew or make changes to your 2015 coverage, you will be automatically re-enrolled in your 2014 health plan with your new monthly premium amount. Also, if you currently receive premium assistance (tax credits), it is extremely important to provide your consent on your application to Covered California to verify your income. If you do not provide consent, you may lose your premium assistance in 2015.



If you are required to make a change because your health plan is no longer available and do not take any action to renew to pick a new health plan for your 2015 coverage, you will lose health coverage starting January 1, 2015. Remember Health Net PPO and Contra Costa Health Plans will no longer be available in 2015. Health Net PPO product will be replaced with Health Net EPO product in Northern California and Health Net Health Care Savings Plan (HCSP) in Southern California. Covered California mailed notices to the impacted consumers about choosing a new health plan for 2015.



How do I keep my premium assistance (tax credits) for 2015?

If you currently receive premium assistance (tax credits), it is extremely important to provide your consent on your application for Covered California to verify your income. The easiest way to provide consent is to follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your account on www.CoveredCA.com
  2. Locate the “ACTIONS” section of the webpage (on the right)
  3. Click on the “Update Consent for Verification” link
  4. Click on the drop down menu to choose the number of years (up to 5 years) to allow Covered California to check your income
  5. Click the “Update” button on the bottom of the webpage to submit your choice

If you do not provide consent, you may lose your premium assistance in 2015.
