Covered California 2015 Renewals

Last week Covered California sent notices about 2015 online renewals. To renew your plan you must log into and click on the Renew tab and follow the instructions. Below is a list of some of the  information Covered California would like you to report:

  • Change in income (employment, self-employment, income tax deductions or other types of income)
  • Adding or removing a household member (birth, adoption, marriage, etc.)
  • Permanent move out of or within California
  • Start receiving health insurance such as through job, Medicare, etc.
  • Change in citizenship/immigration status

The income that needs to be reported is your Estimated 2015 Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). I have attached a document which can be given to your tax consultant to calculate the amount.

 A problem has occurred on their site, I am told the renewal process will not function properly until November 3rd. I would encourage you to try the site on that date and keep trying on a daily basis until you are able to complete the process. Traffic on the site is best in the very early morning and late evening.

In almost all circumstances your current plan choice will be the best choice for 2015. If you want to change your plan let me know, we can arrange for a phone appointment. If we speak you must know your MAGI.

If you reside in the Los Angeles area and you want to be able to access UCLA and Cedars-Sinai facilities through PPO plans purchased through Covered California, you must be insured with Anthem Blue Cross.

If you do not have a change to report and your authorization for Covered California to verify your income with the IRS is current, you do not have to do anything. Your renewal will be automatic.

Your cost for 2015 will change depending on the 2015 premium, the subsidy level which will change for 2015 and your income.
