    Excellent discussion. However, it would have been nice to get specific definition of the exact meaning of ENROLLMENT.
    Does enrollment mean that one has applied, been accepted by CoveredCA, and selected a plan (all of which I have done), OR Does enrollment mean that one has actually been issued the policy by the insurance company (which I have not yet).

    So today is the 23rd (deadline for enrollment) should I be worried?

    • “Enrolled” to Covered California means that you have applied and selected a plan. If you have selected a plan, but not heard from the insurance company, you could contact the company directly. Your first month’s premium is due 1/6/14.
