According to the Daily News, Covered California has already spent $100 million on marketing, and more than 900,000 state residents have enrolled in health plans.
The deadline is March 31, 2014.
Are you enrolled?
If you’re looking for a better, or more convenient time… uh, there’s not going to be one.
So if you’re putting it off, please stop whatever you’re doing and go sign up here. This is why.
If you’re a Hollywood assistant not covered by your employer, or if you just moved to LA and could use direction on how to enroll, check out this guide.
If I’m starting to sound like a nagging grandmother…
Your grandmother lived many years, she knows more than you and someday you’re going to realize that.
Listen, when it comes to your personal finances, there are a handful of positions where, should a Black Swan event occur, you’re leveraged beyond a speedy recovery:
- Overextended on your mortgage (and unable to make payments, so the bank seizes your home)
- Buried in student debt (and unable to obtain employment to start digging your way out)
- Heavily invested in the stock market (and the market crashes)
- Uninsured/underinsured (and you suffer from illness or an accident)
To avoid massive loss should a Black Swan event occur, you have to mitigate your risk. And it’s not everyday where the option to do so is clear and obvious.
Today is that day. Covered California is that option. Getting health insurance is how, as Richard Branson says, you “protect the downside.”
Sign up for health insurance before March 31, 2014.
