Health Insurance Benefits
The insurance offered through Covered California will be comprehensive, very much like that offered by large employers. It will cover, among other things:
- Preventive care at no charge
- Primary and specialty care
- Hospital care
- Prescription drugs
- Laboratory charges
- Reproductive health
There will be co-payments and/or deductibles (i.e., what you pay before the insurance starts to pay). The amount will depend on the particular insurance plan you choose.
Having insurance is an important way to stay healthy and to pay for health care if you get sick or injured. Health insurance will guarantee your access to care, help you to stay healthy, and provide the assurance that you will have help when you need it most.
