Importance of Health Insurance
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as “ObamaCare” or ‘Health Care Reform,” is the newest legislation that helps make sure health insurance is affordable and easy to access for adults and families. Starting October 1, 2013, the ACA now gives you and your loved ones access to no- or low-cost health insurance through Medi-Cal or Covered California (Covered CA).
You may have thought you couldn’t afford health insurance before, but, through Covered CA, you can now shop for a health care plan that is affordable and meets your needs. Health insurance is important in keeping you healthy and helping to cover the cost of care in case you get sick or injured, protecting you when you need it most. There is no greater investment than the health of you and your family and APHCV is here to help you select the best health care option.
Health Coverage Options
Medi-Cal is the name of the Medicaid program in the state of California. As part of the ACA, more people than ever before will now qualify for low- or no-cost health insurance through Medi-Cal. You may qualify if you have an annual household income of up to 138% of the federal poverty level (approximately $32,913 for a family of four).
Medicare is the no- or low-cost federal insurance program for seniors 65 years and older who have legally worked and paid into the program for at least 5-10 years, and individuals with certain disabilities and diseases.
Healthy Kids is an insurance program offered in Los Angeles County for children between the ages of 0-5, who do not qualify for Medi-Cal or Covered CA.
Covered California is the state health insurance marketplace where you can shop for a low cost health insurance plan for those who do not qualify for any of the above programs. You can select from different health insurance carriers and different plans that meet your health care needs and family budget. There is even a federal subsidy to help offset the cost for low-income families.
MyHealth LA is a no-cost program for Los Angeles County residents who are low income and do not qualify for any of the above health insurance programs and cannot afford to purchase private health insurance outside of Covered CA. HWLA covers the cost of primary and preventive care services, specialty care, mental health services as designated health centers, including APHCV. Learn more
