Enrollment Services

Enroll in Health Coverage

Via Care accepts all patients regardless of insurance availability or financial status. Our federally funded health care program allows us to offer a wide range of services to patients through a sliding-fee scale; we also take Medi-Cal and various forms of insurance. Please call to see if we serve your health plan. For more information about Covered California, click here.

 

Programs

 

What to Bring if You’re Applying for Health Coverage

 

For all programs, you will need:

  • Proof of income (pay stub, unemployment insurance stub, income tax return, Social Security award letter, a letter from your employer if you are paid in cash*)

  • Government-issued Photo ID (State ID, Driver License, Passport, Military ID card, etc.)

  • Proof of address (such as a utility bill with your name on it, or a driver license*)

 

If you have them, you should also bring:

  • Birth certificate

  • US residency card

  • Automobile registration

  • Social Security card

  • Proof of pregnancy

 

You can also issue an affidavit if you have no other proof of income or address.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you are still encouraged to bring in proof of income and address verification as you may be eligible for a variety of no-cost or low-cost health care programs. These documents are used solely for determining your eligibility for health care programs and will NOT be submitted to the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) or Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

 

Do you qualify for Medi-Cal?
 

Even if you’ve been turned down in the past, the Affordable Care Act has made more people eligible for Medi-Cal. You may be eligible if:

  • Your income is less than $1,677 for a family of one (check here for all family sizes)

  • You are pregnant

  • You are blind or disabled

  • You are already enrolled in Cal-Fresh, Cal-WORKs, SSI/SSP, Refugee Assistance, or Foster Care/Adoption Assistance Program

 

There are other circumstances where people qualify for Medi-Cal. It’s time to check!

 

Curious about Covered California?
 

Our enrollers are trained and certified to help you navigate the options. You may be eligible for subsidized private health insurance if you make less than $4,860 per month (for a family of one), and you can always enroll regardless of income. Don’t pay a penalty to the IRS… pay for the health insurance you deserved instead!
