Los Angeles, Calif. –Covered California hosted a community fitness event to mark the start of open enrollment to highlight the new California laws that lower health care costs for millions and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Peter V. Lee, Executive Director of Covered California, Laila Ali, world-class athlete, fitness and wellness advocate and Leo Santa Cruz, professional Mexican-American boxer led the crowd in fitness demonstrations to promote the importance of health coverage among Angelenos. 

There is more financial help available than ever, but those are not the only changes including early a million Californians will qualify for financial assistance to get coverage during open enrollment, middle-income individuals and families who make between $50,000 and $150,000 annually are eligible for help for the first time and California also restored the individual mandate, which lowered the cost of coverage, by requiring most people to get covered or pay a penalty.
