Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare", health insurance is available and more affordable for everyone, especially to those with the lowest incomes since it helps subsidize costs. Some of the ways you can obtain health insurance coverage is through the California exchange, through an employer's plan, public programs like Medicaid and CHIP, directly from a private insurance provider, or through health insurance marketplaces like GoHealth. We partner with over 300+ private insurers to help California residents compare plans and benefits, and get better health insurance at the lowest cost.
