The United Way of Northern California is a partner with Covered California. Covered California provides medical, dental and vision coverage for individuals and families who live in California. State residents can get brand-name health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). You may even be able to get help paying for it. 

In California, most people are required by law to have health insurance or pay a tax penalty. If you or your loved ones get sick or hurt, health coverage will make it easier to get the medical care you need and give you peace of mind. With Covered California, you can choose from a variety of plans and may qualify for a discount on private insurance or insurance through California’s Medi-Cal program.
