Obamacare and What You Need to Know  - Shopping Makes $ense

This fall marks the fourth year of Obamacare, also known as The Affordable Care Act, which has provided health care to millions of Californians. You may have heard that the cost will be going up in 2017, but we want you to know, you don’t need to worry. Make an appointment to see an AltaMed Certified Enrollment Counselors and shop for a plan that best meets you and your family’s personal needs. You may find a plan that is more affordable; but you won’t know until you shop.

We’re proud to be the # 1 Covered California enroller three years in a row. We’re the experts and we have bilingual Certified Enrollment Counselors ready to help you compare and find the best plan for you and your family. With 4 out of 5 applicants receiving help with monthly premiums, chances are you may qualify for tax credits. 

When Do I Need to Select a Plan and Renew?

If you want to maintain your health coverage for January 1, 2017, you need to renew your Covered California plan by December 15, 2016.  We know that for some of our patients this is the first time they’ve had consistent health coverage. If this is you or a family member, we don’t want you to lose your coverage. Your health should be a priority to keep you well and up to date with your preventive care exams.

Where Do I Go for Help?

Our Health Insurance Resource Centers and clinics are available six days a week and in the evenings too. Please call an AltaMed representative at 1-888-363-1293, option 2 to make an appointment to shop and compare, join us for our upcoming events and you can get your questions answered and learn more about the services AltaMed offers.
