Is your individual plan changing or being cancelled?
Starting in 2014, most health insurance companies that offer private individual and/or family plans are changing their plans, rights, protections and coverage. If you were previously enrolled in a private individual and/or family plan you may fall in one of two situations:
- Your plan will change to include more comprehensive coverage as mandated by the ACA.
- Your plan will be cancelled. If your plan was cancelled you are still guaranteed coverage by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Select a new plan either through a private health insurance company or through Covered California Health Benefits Exchange.
How to enroll in an individual plan
If you are seeking coverage by a private plan, also known as a commercial plan, you, or you and your family have two options:
- You may obtain coverage by enrolling in a plan by a private health insurance company or agent.
Select a private insurance company that offers individual and/or family plans such as:
- Aetna (family plans only)
- Anthem Blue Cross
- Blue Shield of California
- ChoiceCare Network
- Coventry Health Care
- First Health
- Health Net
- Health Smart
- Orange County Foundation for Medical Care
- UnitedHealthcare (family plans only)
- You may obtain coverage by enrolling through a private insurance company that offers a health benefits exchange plan, such as Anthem Blue Cross. Or you may obtain coverage by enrolling in a plan through the Covered California Health Benefits Exchange.
Whichever plan you choose, ensure that it allows you access to the primary care physicians and hospitals you prefer.
