Covered California Releases Updated Regional Enrollment Data

Covered California has released enrollment data by region for the period of Nov. 15, 2014, to Feb. 22, 2015. The data includes enrollment by pricing region, metal level of individuals enrolled and carrier selected for plan years 2014 and 2015. Covered California is offering a special enrollment period for consumers who did not know or understand there was a tax penalty for being uninsured in 2014 or who learned they may face a penalty for 2015. Consumers have until April 30, 2015, to apply for health coverage during special enrollment by attesting that they did not realize there was a tax penalty. Although open enrollment has ended, consumers who experience a qualifying life event can still gain health insurance coverage through special enrollment in Covered California.
