CSU Health Insurance Education Project
Under the new Affordable Care Act, many of our students, families and staff members will be eligible for either no-cost, public insurance under the newly expanded Medi-Cal program, OR heavily discounted (subsidized) private insurance purchased through a new government entity know as Covered California.
What is Covered California?
Covered CA is the new online marketplace for affordable, quality health insurance. At CoveredCA.com you can:
- Compare health insurance plans
- Determine how much financial assistance you may receive
- Learn about your options, benefits and costs
- Purchase your insurance
Enrollment in Covered California will begin October 1st. Insurance under both Medi-Cal and Covered California will begin on January 1, 2014.
What is the CSU Health Insurance Education Project?
The CSU Health Insurance Education Project (HIEP) is a joint CSU/CSULA project to educate CSU students, their families and campus staffs about the new health insurance law and the opportunity it offers many in the CSU community to get affordable health insurance.
The CSU Health Insurance Education Project has representatives on 15 CSU campuses. To connect with a representative on your campus email the CSU Health Insurance Education Project.
