Californians can now get health coverage through a new, easy-to-use marketplace called Covered California. Covered California will offer health insurance plans, which cannot be canceled or denied, at an affordable price. Californians can shop for the plans on-line or see if they are eligible for Medi-Cal, and Covered California will provide in‑person and phone assistance for those who need it.  Balboa Teen Health Center has Certified California Covered Outreach Workers that can assist in answering your questions. Please contact Amanda Aguilar or Victor Travis at 415-469-4512 for more information.
