By the end of March, 1.4 million people had selected a Covered California health insurance plan, including 40,377 in Riverside County.

Although open enrollment has ended, consumers who experience a qualifying life event can still enroll in a health insurance plan through Covered California. Qualifying life events include losing health coverage through a job, getting married or entering into a domestic partnership, having or adopting a child, changing where a person permanently lives or gaining citizenship.
