The mistake has since been fixed on the Covered California website.
A spokesperson from Covered California told the US network that the issue was isolated and only appeared under certain circumstances, but did not elaborate.
Under California Penal Code Section 288.4, it is illegal to arrange a meeting with a minor or a person you believe to be under the age of 18 for the purpose of lewd and lascivious sexual conduct.
This includes using means such as online chat rooms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to contact the minor.
These days, parents take extra precautions to make sure their children are not chatting online with someone they don’t know, especially if the person is an adult.
