Covered California Offers Open Enrollment Toolkit for Hospitals
Open enrollment begins Nov. 1 and lasts through Jan. 31, 2018

CHA and Covered California are joining together to ask for hospitals’ continued assistance in ensuring that all patients understand the health coverage options available to them through the Covered California marketplace. In addition, Covered California has developed a toolkit for hospitals, offering ready-to-use information to share with patients. The attached letter contains links to a variety of toolkit resources, including an open enrollment fact sheet, as well as flyers on the financial assistance available through the Covered California marketplace and steps patients can take to apply for coverage.  Covered California urges hospitals to consider other ways to promote open enrollment in their communities, such as through social media, by including information in community newsletters, participating in local press events or partnering to promote enrollment events.  

California hospitals have played a vital role in communicating with patients about their Covered California health coverage options and will continue to lead the way in assisting patients with eligibility and information during the open enrollment period from Nov. 1 through Jan. 31.
