The Covered CA Open Enrollment period is now open until January 31, 2018!

1) Medi-Cal enrollment is available year-round, which means you can still apply outside of Open Enrollment through Covered CA or your local county social services office.

2) If you have a Qualifying Life Event you may still enroll in health insurance outside of Open Enrollment through Covered CA, as long as you enroll within 60 days of the event. 

The Berkeley Free Clinic has certified enrollment counselors who can help those who are uninsured get subsidized health insurance through Covered CA or enroll in Medi-Cal. If you are unsure if you qualify for either of these options or know you would like to get enrolled, please call the clinic at (510) 548-2570 or (800) 6-CLINIC, or email You may also request our assistance using this online form; we will call or email you within a week of submission to answer your questions and/or set up an in-person appointment. 

In-person enrollment assistance is available by appointment on Tuesdays 6-9PM and Saturdays 3-6PM. You can use the Shop and Compare Tool to see what health plan(s) you may qualify for before requesting our service.
