Covered CA Identity Proof Now Required

Identity Proofing Required as of August 4, 2014
New Job Aid Available

As of today, August 4, 2014, with Covered California’s new enrollment system release, consumers are now required to submit proof of identity when applying for coverage. This process can be completed by a consumer or with your help as their Certified Insurance Agent.

Identity proofing is necessary for all new Individual Marketplace applications and for consumers wanting to make changes to previously submitted applications submitted on or after August 4th.

Once a consumer has completed the identity proofing process, they do not need to be re-proofed, even if their identity details should change.

As a note, the identity proofing process does not apply to small group applications for the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).
