Health Insurance And Enrollment
Community Colleges Compliance with Assembly Bill No. 2308Assembly Bill No. 2308 for Insurance
You can generally buy marketplace health insurance only during the annual Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment for 2017 coverage starts November 1, 2016.
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. For more information about whether you can apply for health insurance outside of the Open Enrollment Period, see resources listed below.
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.
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. That is why the Student Health Services staff is dedicated to assisting you in enrolling in health insurance.
For more information, please contact Yajaira Rodriguez, Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator at Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI). She is able to individually assist all students with the health insurance enrollment process. This is NOT a resource for Asian Students only.
