LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Following the recent rollout of the Affordable Care Act, Baldwin Hills Crenshaw has teamed up with Covered California and Senator Holly Mitchell's office to help connect neighbors to health care options offered through California's new health insurance exchange. A Covered California booth located on the mall's Macy's bridge will be unveiled on Wednesday with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

Covered California is the state's official marketplace managed under the federal Affordable Care Act. Coverage under the new exchange will launch in January 2014, which will feature competitively priced plans for individuals and small businesses. Under this system, interested participants can compare their options and choose the plan that best fits their needs and their budget. At Baldwin Hills Crenshaw, customers can receive personal guidance from Covered California representatives and purchase the plan that is right for them. 

This is the first time Covered California is offering this individualized service within a retail center. Representatives are available, offering free assistance to the public seven days a week through March 2014. Booth hours are 4pm-9pm Monday through Friday; 3pm-8pm Saturday; and 1pm-6pm Sunday.
