Stay Informed About Covered California

Valley Health Plan is one of the five Covered California health plans available in Santa Clara County. The Covered California exchange was created to develop a readily accessible, user-friendly marketplace for health coverage for California residents. Health insurance companies are not allowed to deny or cancel this coverage if members become sick or have pre-existing chronic conditions, such as diabetes and asthma.

All health insurance plans that are offered within the Covered California marketplace must include certain services that are referred to as essential health benefits. These services include physician visits, emergency care, hospital stays, maternity care, children’s care, medical testing, prescription medications, and mental health care. Health insurance plans must include 100 percent coverage for preventative services as well, such as colonoscopies and mammograms.
