Health insurance signup deadline

 

Sunday, Feb. 15, is the deadline to sign up for health insurance through Covered California, the state's health plan marketplace under the Affordable Care Act.

Residents who do not enroll by Feb. 15 may have to wait until January 2016 to get coverage and financial assistance. There are 30,000 people in San Mateo County who are eligible for health insurance but have not yet enrolled, county officials say.

"Many people are not aware that they qualify for financial assistance," says Srija Srinivasan, the county's health system director of strategic operations. "We are available to help on the phone and in-person."

Visit CoveredCA.com to enroll or call (650) 616-2002 for enrollment assistance.
