Just off the Covered California bus after two great days in the Bay Area and Central Valley. Carolina Coleman is on the bus today, then John Connolly on Thursday, and Chauntrece Washington on Friday. They hope to see you if you are at one of the bus stops.
Open enrollment begins this Saturday at 12:01 am online and the call centers will open at 8:00 am. This year, there will be 200 brand new storefronts, manned by application assisters, more call center employees, and an improved online enrollment. The plans have increased the doctors in their networks. Let us know how it’s working and what needs improvement.
This year, the open enrollment is shorter: three months as opposed to six months last year.
Remember that 3.4 million Californians enrolled last year, cutting the state’s uninsured rate in half, so we need to help new people to enroll for the first time and help existing people who will be renewing their coverage.
Thanks for everything you do. We’re in.
