Covered California

Many Californians Unaware of New
California Individual Mandate

A recent survey released by Covered California, ”Californians’ Understanding of the Mandate to Have Health Coverage and the Awareness of Financial Help,” found:

Many Californians, especially the uninsured, are unaware of the penalty. Many Californians reported being unaware of the new requirement to have health coverage in 2020 or face a penalty, including a majority of the uninsured (56%).

Knowledge of the penalty increases the likelihood the uninsured will enroll. Among the uninsured, once informed about the penalty, 64% said they were more likely to enroll in health insurance for 2020. This compares to only 46% percent of uninsured respondents who said they planned to have health coverage in 2020 when asked at the beginning of the survey.

Work Perks Job Seekers Really Want

For employees, generous paid time off and flexibility matter more than other possible perks — and, in some cases, even money, according to a recent online poll of more than 1,500 working adults conducted by employee benefits provider Unum. 

While paid time off is at the top of the list, student loan repayment and lifestyle benefits like gym memberships and onsite healthy food options are gaining as most desired work perks.

Willis Towers Watson found in their 2019 Best Practices in Health Care Survey that more employers are rethinking benefits to recruit and retain top talent.

Employers Need to Beef Up Benefits
With today’s unemployment rate hitting a low of 3.6%, benefits matter. If workers aren’t getting what they want from their employer, they’ll look for better benefits elsewhere. 41% of workers said they’re likely to look for a new job with better benefits.
