Lake Elsinore Patch

Covered California and the California Department of Health Care Services announced today that from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30, an estimated 20,873 individuals in the Inland Empire started applications for Covered California health insurance plans.

Covered California was formed as a result of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Cumulatively, 9,882 individuals in the counties of San Bernardino and Riverside have enrolled in subsidized or non-subsidized Covered California health insurance plans, which reflects about 9 percent of the statewide enrollment (the two counties make up 13 percent of those eligible for subsidies statewide), according to today’s joint statement.
