Balance by CCHP and Covered California would like to share great news about the deadline for joining or switching their health plan coverage. The original deadline of January 31 has been extended to February 9th. There is still time but you must act today.

STILL GET COVERAGE STARTING 2/1/24. If people join or switch to Balance by CCHP by the new 2/9/24 deadline, they will begin their coverage on 2/1/24. Having health plan coverage is all about having a sense of security in knowing in case something unexpected happens.

WHO DOES THIS APPLY TO. If people who started the process of signing up or have what’s called Qualifying Life Event, this enrollment deadline has been extended. The extra benefit is that the coverage can start back to Feb 1, 2024.  Qualifying Life Event can be a number of things such as: just lost a job and health coverage, moved, income changed, married or divorced, and more.

MORE FINANCIAL HELP AVAILABLE. In 2024, many more people with higher income levels will receive financial help from the government. Because of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) law that was passed last year, individuals with incomes of up to $125,000 for a family of four can receive help pay for premiums or cost shares or both. Many people pay just a $1 a month for full coverage.

Balance by CCHP is for people who live in San Francisco or San Mateo County. It’s a SF based health plan that caters specifically to Bay Area Chinese and Asians. This means there are independent neighborhood doctors and nurses who will care for you and more of your healthcare dollars stay in the community. Now, Balance offers a no-cost membership to One Medical Primary Care for all members. That’s a $199 a year value at no cost, as long as they are Balance members.

So, don’t miss this last chance to make sure you have the right health insurance coverage. Go into the new year with the peace-of-mind knowing you got yourself and your family covered.
