Covered California Volume Provides Challenges for Many Applicants

Of the 625,000 people that have enrolled in a Covered California health plan through Jan.15, 5000,000 of those applications have come in the past six weeks.  According to the Los Angeles Times, “that surge in volume has often overwhelmed the state exchange and many of its participating health plans”.  Covered California has said that 40% of people that have signed up said the sign-up process was “difficult” and the average wait time for the call center was at 49 minutes this month.   Affordable California can help if you are experiencing challenges with enrolling in a Covered California health plan.  Our friendly staff of certified insurance agents are standing by to answer your questions and can enroll you over the phone.  You can reach us at 800-788-2197.
