Covered California® has extended their current special enrollment deadline to July 31 to give individuals and families more time to sign up for health care coverage, either on-exchange or off-exchange, during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new deadline means that eligible Californians can apply for health care benefits through the end of July 2020.
First-of-the-month start date
After selecting a plan, coverage will begin on the first of the following month — meaning individuals who may have lost job-based coverage will not face a gap in coverage. Sharp Health Plan will continue to accept individual and family plan applications for your on- and off-exchange clients through July 31, 2020. The following effective dates will apply.
