Covered California Enrollment Has a Strong Start

Covered California announced that 69,245 consumers submitted applications for health coverage, including Medi-Cal, during the first four days of the 2015 open-enrollment period. Executive director Peter V. Lee said, “We had a strong start when we opened Saturday for Covered California, and we are continuing to see tremendous interest from people seeking security for themselves and their families in Covered California plans and Medi-Cal coverage.”

As of Tuesday, November 18, about 35,877 consumers were determined to be eligible for coverage through Covered California, and 11,357 picked a plan. In comparison, in October 2013, it took 15 days to reach 10,972 plan selections. About 33,368 applicants were deemed to be likely eligible for Medi-Cal from November 15 to November 18. So far in 2014, Medi-Cal has enrolled more than 2.2 million Californians.

The second open enrollment of the Affordable Care Act began on Saturday, November 15, and continues through Feb. 15, 2015. Californians used the enhanced website at www.CoveredCA.com to apply for coverage using a single, streamlined application.

The website is working well for the vast majority of consumers. In four days, there were 314,100 unique visitors to CoveredCA.com. The upgraded enrollment portal allows for greater user capacity and faster page loads so that consumers do not have to return later to complete an application.  More than 12,000 certified insurance agents, 10,000 county eligibility workers and more than 6,000 certified enrollment counselors are partnered with Covered California, ready to help enroll consumers.

Covered California anticipates a total enrollment of 1.7 million Californians (excluding Medi-Cal enrollees) by the end of the second open-enrollment period: 1.5 million in subsidized coverage and 230,000 in unsubsidized coverage. This forecast represents an increase of about 500,000 in total enrollment.
