Under California Senate Bill 78, residents who don’t have qualifying health insurance coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2020 will be subject to a tax penalty of $695 or more, unless they qualify for an exemption.
Sharp Health Plan is offering a special open enrollment period for your employer clients and their employees who previously waived or declined coverage. These employees and their eligible dependents can enroll now through Dec. 31, 2019 for coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2020 — just in time for them to avoid financial penalties!
