How to Choose Sharp Through Covered California
The health insurance marketplace Covered California is now open, providing millions of people with affordable health insurance options — including new access to Sharp-affiliated physicians.
We invite you to begin a relationship with Sharp, where we’re working to transform the health care experience for our patients and their families. What this means is that for us, you come first. We offer four acute-care hospitals, three specialty hospitals and a full spectrum of other facilities and services.
From Oct. 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014, people who are uninsured or who purchase their own insurance can join Sharp by selecting one of the following health insurance plans and levels of coverage offered through Covered California:
Sharp Health Plan
HMO: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum
Anthem Blue Cross
HMO: Silver, Gold and Platinum
EPO: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum
When you purchase a health plan through Covered California, your relationship with a Sharp-affiliated physician begins as early as January 2014. Depending on your household income, you may be eligible for a subsidy.
Sharp’s passion for caring is shared by our 2,600 physicians, including more than 1,100 physicians in our two affiliated medical groups — Sharp Rees-Stealy and Sharp Community Medical Group — and more than 15,000 employees.
We invite you to begin your Sharp Experience through Covered California.
