Enrollment is underway if you are looking for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.

In California, that is called Covered California.

Some plans start at 10 dollars per month, but there are eligibility requirements.

The lower cost plans are subsidized by the government, which raises taxes on wealthy people, so low cost plans can be offered to low-income people.

If you sign up now at www.coveredca.gov  About a million people don’t have insurance and some will be able to sign up for free.  Governor Gavin Newsom says they won’t stop until everyone has the health insurance they need and deserve.
