How to Choose Sharp Through Covered California
Health insurance coverage is now more affordable through Covered California.
In 2021, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan (ARP), which provides additional financial assistance to people buying health insurance through Covered California.
You may now qualify for help paying for health insurance — even if you didn't before. Plans are available for as little as $0 per month, depending on income.
Find out if you qualify.
To learn more or to find out if you qualify for new financial help, contact a Sharp Health Plan enrollment specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 858-499-8211, or visit Covered California's website.
