Covered California open enrollment ends, but many still will transition in and out
U.C. Berkeley News

Recent media reports about Covered California have focused on the crush of people trying to sign up for the program’s medical insurance programs by March 31, but analysts at UC Berkeley say not to overlook the many people who will join or leave the program after that deadline.

Researchers at UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education are providing new data on the large numbers of people who will enter and leave the program over the coming year, outside the open enrollment period, as the program makes more people, due to various life transitions, eligible for coverage.
