Residents of California, including South Orange County have the option to participate in the California Health Benefit Exchange know as Covered California, which will become available through Golden State Health Insurance or the California Health Exchange. It becomes law on January 1, 2014 and will allow individuals and small businesses (via their own exchange) to buy qualified, guaranteed issue health plans through an insurance marketplace. Open enrollment is October 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014. You must be enrolled in a health insurance plan (either inside or outside the Health Benefit Exchange) to avoid penalties.
Golden State Health Insurance is taking the lead as the new health care law goes into effect. Our expertise & knowledge is helping people of Mission Viejo, and all of South Orange County, educate themselves on the available health plan options and the various possibilities of keeping their costs to a minimum.
