Benefit Packages Experiences Surge of Calls for Covered California Enrollment
The agents at Benefit Packages are exchange-certified and have been trained on the complexities of the ACA and California's state-based health insurance exchange, Covered California. They are in a unique position to help the flood of consumers looking to purchase insurance before the healthcare mandate deadline.
Many consumers will qualify for financial assistance to help cover out-of-pocket medical costs and/or premiums in the form of cost-sharing subsidies and tax breaks. Eligibility is based on income, and those who earn between 138% and 400% of the federal poverty level will generally qualify. Benefit Packages helps California consumers understand which plans are available to them and whether they are eligible for cost-sharing subsidies or tax breaks.
Benefit Packages works with several of the insurance carriers offering coverage through Covered California and urges consumers to apply by the March 31 deadline in order to avoid a penalty. Visit the company's website at benefitpackages.com or call 1-800-356-3615 for enrollment assistance.
