“Reporting a Change” at Covered CA can result in terminating your coverage if you’re not careful…

Consumers who apply for coverage through Covered California agree to report changes within 30 days. See below section REQUIRED SELF-REPORTING for details.

After signing to your account, by clicking on the “Report a Change” button you can, for example, correct a typo, change your income, update your address, indicate you have become eligible for other health insurance, such as insurance offered by your employer. (Please note that Eligible does not mean that you actually sign up for group coverage, just that you can.)

If you need to change your name, date of birth, or Social Security number (or those of other members on the application), please call the Covered California Service Center at (800) 300-1506 and a representative can change that information in your account.

As the last step for any change you must pick your health plan and check out again, just like when you first picked a plan. Be sure to pick the same plan in which you are currently enrolled. If you fail to pick a plan and check out, or if you pick a different health plan, your coverage will be terminated.
