Sierra Sun Times

With one week to go before the April 15 deadline for application completion, Covered California™ is urging consumers to contact a certified assister to enroll in time to get health insurance benefits and avoid a tax penalty.

Enrollment for low-cost or no-cost Medi-Cal insurance through the Covered California website will not be affected by the deadline, as it continues year-round.

A crush of consumer interest flooded Covered California’s phone lines and online application system in the final days leading up to the March 31 deadline for getting coverage in the state exchange’s first open-enrollment period.
