Covered California Reminds Hospitals of Open Enrollment Toolkit

CHA and Covered California are joining together again to ask for hospitals’ continued assistance in helping ensure that all patients understand the health coverage options available to them through the Covered California marketplace. In the last two years, California hospitals have played a vital role in communicating with patients about their 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, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016.

CHA and Covered California are proud of providing care to more than 2 million Covered California consumers and assisting millions more with Medi-Cal enrollment. Much of this accomplishment is a result of the resources and information hospitals provide to patients. During open enrollment for 2016, CHA and Covered California ask for hospitals’ partnership once again in promoting a culture of coverage throughout the state.

As part of these efforts, Covered California has provided a toolkit, which includes valuable, ready to-use information. Covered California encourages hospitals to modify this information to meet the needs of their communities and share it with patients.
