You purchase health insurance yourself (non-Medicare)
If you currently purchase a private health insurance policy on your own you may:
- Purchase a plan through Covered California health care exchange.
- Purchase a plan directly through a health insurance website or agent outside of the exchange.
Covered California is the California State Health Marketplace also referred to as the "Exchange," which enables you to enroll in Individual and Family Plans (IFP). Certain income eligible participants may qualify for premium assistance and subsidies through the federal government, if the coverage is purchased on the Exchange. There is a separate Exchange for small businesses, called the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).
