CALIFORNIA - The open enrollment deadline to sign up for health insurance is quickly approaching.

Many Californians do not know there is a tax penalty for those who can afford it but choose to go without it. For a family of four, the penalty can be more than $2,000 when they file their taxes in 2021.

In a new state law, everyone must have coverage in 2020 by the extended deadline of midnight on Friday, Jan. 31.

Covered California says about one million people will also get help from the state to lower their health care costs. They also said middle-income Californians will qualify for financial aid, for the first time.
