President Biden has approved a Special Enrollment Period from February 1, 2021 to May 15, 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. During this period no qualifying life event (QLE) is required to enroll in a health plan for 2021.

New Law, American Rescue Plan

President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law on March 11, 2021.  Under the new law, many people who buy their own health insurance may now be eligible to receive tax credits to reduce their monthly premiums. The new law provides financial assistance to help people get economic relief and ensures eligible consumers, at any income level, do not pay more than 8.5 percent of their overall household income. 

The American Rescue Plan could save you hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars a month!   To find additional details about the American Rescue Plan or find out more about tax credits offered to you, contact Covered California at 1.800.300.1506 (toll-free) or visit to use the Shop and Compare button towards the top of the page to calculate your savings. Contact your Broker for enrollment assistance or the VHP Sales Team at 408.885.3560 Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  If you select VHP as your Covered California plan you can continue to see your Primary Care Provider and payments toward your deductible and maximum out of pocket will transfer to your new plan.
