Lizelda Lopez from Covered California, California's health insurance exchange, was on Sunrise to tell us more on getting health insurance. Some people have experienced slow connections on the Covered California website or long waits when calling on the phone. There are also community partners, certified to help people sign up in person.  Click here for the list of agents.

Lopez also addressed concerns about low enrollment numbers by the state's Hispanic population and how they plan to address the issue.
