Covered California Education Coming to CI!

Starting January 2014, most Californians are required to have some type of health insurance. Covered California (CC) is the State’s new insurance marketplace that allows you to compare and choose affordable plans. CI has arranged for a United Way Covered California Certified Educator to visit campus in November to answer questions about health insurance. The Educator can explain what this new requirement means to you.
