CaliforniaChoice Offers Broad Network Access Across California

The idea of offering multiple insurers through a single program was revolutionary in 1996. Nearly three decades later, CaliforniaChoice still stands apart for providing a different approach to health care. Our program offers you and your employees access to eight premier health plans -- a portfolio that is the most diverse in the state.

Beyond that, CaliforniaChoice includes plans in all four Affordable Care Act (ACA) tiers. Each tier offers a different percentage of shared health care costs for you and your employees.

CaliforniaChoice offers Dental, Vision, Chiropractic & Acupuncture, and Life benefits, too. And, as a member of CaliforniaChoice, you get value-added extras like a Premium Only Plan, online HR support, Cal-COBRA or COBRA billing services, employee discounts on travel, entertainment, and other services, plus tools to compare plans, look up providers, and more.
