UPDATED: Covered CA Mandatory Health Insurance (Special Enrollment) Deadline is now April 30 2020. Covid-19 exemption qualifies.
If you did not know about the new law and the health insurance mandate (Affordable Care Act (Covered CA) , luckily you now have until April 30, 2020 to sign up for a quality health plan. Time is running out.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and conditions, the state allows this exemption as a special enrollment. It is not clear what the expiration date is at this time.

This gives individuals and families a little more time to get health insurance. Applicants can cite COVID-19 as an exemption which will allow late entry into the program even though the open enrollment period has expired – apply on https://coveredca.com
