Submit new business on time and determine whether it qualifies for a bonus program.
Starting January 1, 2020, California Senate Bill 78 (CA SB 78) requires all California residents, including children, to maintain minimum essential coverage or be subject to a state tax penalty (unless they qualify for an exemption).
Covered California for Small Business sent an email to all active CCSB employers about the California Individual Mandate and how CCSB can help.
Due to the new law (California SB78) signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on June 27, 2019 which institutes an individual mandate to have qualifying health coverage throughout the year beginning January 1, 2020 and to avoid paying penalties when filing 2020 state income tax return in 2021. UnitedHealthcare will allow employees and/or their dependents who previously declined coverage in 2019 a special open enrollment January 1, 2020.
