“Hi. I’m Congresswoman Linda Sánchez, and I represent California’s 38th Congressional District.
“Despite the confusing messages you may have heard from the White House and Republicans in Congress, I want to assure you that the Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land.
“You can enroll in a health plan for next year through California’s ACA marketplace, Covered California, where you can shop and compare plans to determine which one works best for you and your family. Visit CoveredCA.com to sign up today.
“Health insurance may be more affordable than you think. In fact, most people who get coverage through Covered California qualify for financial help to lower their health care costs. You’ll be able to see if you are eligible for any federal financial assistance at CoveredCA.com.
“Remember: your time to enroll for coverage next year is limited. In California, we have until January 31st to sign up. But if you want your coverage to start on January 1st, you need to sign up by December 15th.
“I strongly urge you to enroll early and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
“All of this may sound complicated, but don’t worry. There are resources available to assist you in this process. Visit CoveredCA.com for more information and to sign up. If you need help, call Covered California today at 1-800-787-6921 again – that’s 1-800-787-6921.
