Affordable Care Act and Covered California

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as ObamaCare, is a significant overhaul of the US healthcare system. The primary objective is to decrease the number of uninsured individuals and reduce overall healthcare costs.

ACA requires all individuals to have health insurance effective January 1, 2014. Covered California is available for individuals that are not eligible for health insurance through their employer or don’t have access to health insurance.  Covered California has a menu of affordable health insurance options for individuals to choose from. For more information about Covered California, please visit http://www.coveredca.com/.

Beginning January 1, 2015, employers will be required to offer affordable coverage to all employees working an average of 30 hours per week and implement specific IRS reporting requirements.
