The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) offers numerous options for individuals and families lacking health insurance. It introduces new rules aimed at extending health coverage to previously ineligible individuals. Moreover, California's Medi-Cal has undergone substantial changes, expanding health coverage to a larger population. The Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services provides support for enrolling in various health insurance programs, including Medi-Cal, Covered CA, and the Kaiser Community Health Care Program. Our Navigators can efficiently assess your eligibility for these programs over the phone, streamlining the enrollment process for you.
