See how to download your 1095 Form from #CoveredCalifornia.
The 1095 form tells the IRS you had health insurance. When it will arrive depends on how you receive your medical insurance in California. More details...

Story
Tagline
"Leading you through the health insurance maze"
Introduction
Founder of SPF Insurance Services.  

As a type 1 diabetic I had to learn how to get health insurance for myself and family.  The information was not readily available in the 2001 time frame when I decided to start my own business.  So I call ed every health insurance company and a bunch of insurance brokers and agencies until I figured out how to get coverage.

My primary profession was as a financial planner, and early on I realized that many of my clients had the wrong kind of health insurance and life insurance, so I began adding those to my practice.  I've always been a fan of independence, so I work with all the major health insurance companies in California.  

A great deal of our clients are self employed, divorced, or have pre-existing conditions that make getting insurance tough, and we also work with small businesses to help them get affordable health insurance for their employees.

At SPF Insurance we are your premier health insurance agency in San Diego. Whether you need affordable family or group health insurance quotes, or even term life insurance we can help.

I am a published expert in the health insurance industry and write about health care topics that don't have simple answers.  Articles usually cover information you won't find anywhere else on the web, and include fact-based analysis of plans, methods, and recommendations.  I have special interests in maternity insurance, and people with Pre-Existing Conditions.
