There are many good reasons to include qualifying adults such as parents and stepparents within a Covered California household. There can also be unintended consequences such as making the entire household eligible for Medi-Cal and ineligible for the Covered California subsidies. The best approach is to understand all of the IRS rules regarding a qualifying relative and how the inclusion of the parent or stepparent will modify the eligibility of the household for the subsidies and Medi-Cal.
Consumers can change their health plans even if they have been passively renewed. If a household has been passively enrolled into a new plan, because their 2022 health plan is not offered for 2023, the consumer can change plans. If changes are made by December 27, the new plan will become effective January 1, 2023. Plan changes in January will become effective in February.
Covered California is not a health plan or health insurance. Covered California is more like a farmer’s market. The market place is organized by Covered California. Insurance companies then bring their health plans to the market place for people to review. Consumers enter the market place and purchase health insurance directly from the vendors. Covered California is just creating the space for the health plan transactions.
Once you know which plans support your providers, you can begin to build your benefit comparison spreadsheet. I have broken this spreadsheet into 3 categories: medical, prescription drug, and supplemental benefits. I created a fictitious plan sponsor, Solar System Health Plans, and fictitious plan names: Mercury 212, Venus 72, and Saturn 25.

Part of the blame for the increase in complaints lies with Medicare. First, Medicare allows plan sponsors of the Medicare Advantage plans to offer multiple plans with almost identical names. Second, Medicare is allowing the plan sponsors to offer non-health supplementary benefits – benefits not covered by Original Medicare – within the Medicare Advantage plans. These two elements lead to confusion on the part of the beneficiary and agent when comparing multiple plans.

The extraction, storage, and manipulation of your personal online data is akin to the wild west. There are few rules in this relatively young industry and what rules there are, the app gleaners ignore until they are caught violating the law. You can’t see the digital portrait you have created by your own actions on your mobile device and captured by the health insurance apps. In a sense, they own your image. Usually images you create are protected by copyright laws. In this new industry of digital surveillance and capture, you don’t own your own image.
Some young adults, who lacked proper immigration documents, were granted Medi-Cal prior to or during the Public Health Emergency. Those individuals have now aged out of that program and risk losing Medi-Cal coverage when the system resumes normal operations. This means they will have a gap in coverage until January 1, 2024, when they would once again be eligible for Medi-Cal.
David, the gentleman Ann wrote had been shot in the back, did make it to California. David Beach was also a cousin of Amos Catlin and several people wrote to Amos about news of David’s gunshot injury. Of the other men listed in the letter to Amos Catlin, Judge Hastings was most likely Serranus Clinton Hastings. Judge Hastings lived and practice law in Iowa. He found his way to California and was appointed to the California Supreme Court and later won the election to become the state’s Attorney General.
