I'm so glad I found this Covered California agent. I spent a lot of time on the website and I had a lot of questions. So many, in fact, I put off getting insurance. I was driving down Blackstone and saw their sign and decided to go in to see what my options were. I walked out with health insurance sign up and all my questions answered. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about about all the rules and options available to me. All in all I had a good experience and I was very happy with the level of service.John Richau

The staff at Covered California were great. They were very helpful. I got a great health insurance policy through Anthem Blue Cross for my entire family for only $248.00 a month. I choose the silver plan. I got a low deductible and low co-pays. I highly recommend them to anyone needing quality health insurance. Helpful?Reda Abdelshaheed
