Need Help Paying for Health Coverage Costs?

Date: 11/26/18

This health tip is brought to you by Health Net of California, Inc., and Health Net Life Insurance Company (Health Net).

Health expenses can add up. Still, there are ways to get financial help for people who qualify. There are programs available through Covered California that bring down costs.

There are two kinds of financial assistance offered through Covered California:

  1. Premium assistance, which reduces the amount you pay each month for your health coverage.
  2. Cost-sharing reductions, which lower the out-of-pocket costs you might pay when you see a doctor or use other services. (Out-of-pocket costs include copayments, coinsurance and deductibles.)

You can get premium assistance for any type of plan if you qualify. Cost-sharing reductions can only be used with “Silver tier” plans.

Interested in learning if you qualify? Just go to and click on See If You Qualify for Financial Help. Or call us with your questions at 1-877-878-7983.
