SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Amid the coronavirus pandemic - Covered California is reopening enrollment for those impacted.

People who don't have insurance can enroll through the end of June.

Covered California and the Department of Health Care Services joined together to make sure that those losing employment would have an available path to coverage.

On Friday - members from Covered California announced that enrollment would be reopening for eligible uninsured individuals who need health care coverage during the coronavirus pandemic.

Anyone who meets Covered California's eligibility requirements, which are similar to those in place during the annual open enrollment period can sign up.

People who sign up through Covered California will get access to private health insurance plans with monthly premiums.

Once people select a plan -  coverage would begin on the first of the following month.

That's an important timeline because people losing their coverage from their previous job won't face a gap in coverage.

If people qualify for Covered California - all screenings for the coronavirus will be free of charge.

The state has implemented a 90-day hold on Medi-Cal renewal reviews, making sure those who are already enrolled can continue their coverage.

If people enroll with Medi-Cal they can have coverage as soon as they sign up.

California is just one of 11 states who run its own healthcare subsidized exchanges.
