COMING SOON! The Health Insurance Marketplace will be Open for Business Nov 1- Dec 15.
Beginning November 1st, people who need health insurance will be able to enroll at www.healthcare.gov. Americans will have a shortened window to enroll or re-enroll in marketplace plans this year, needing to do so by the December 15th deadline in order to secure coverage for 2018.
During the open enrollment period, www.healthcare.gov is the place to go for all the information you need to get covered. On the website, you can learn about how to use the marketplace, review different plans, and determine your eligibility for tax credits. Even if you have an insurance plan, it’s worth comparing to those in the marketplace in case you are eligible for a less expensive package. In fact, 8 out of 10 Americans qualify for financial help on plans provided by the Affordable Care Act.
The marketplace offers four different tiers of plans so you can find one that fits your needs. Once you’ve found the right plan, applying is quick and simple. Using your smartphone or computer, an application takes as little as ten minutes.
Nobody expects to get sick or hurt, but it is something you can prepare for. With tax credits that can lower your monthly premiums, it’s easy and affordable to insure yourself against the unexpected.
If you or someone you love needs health insurance, go to www.healthcare.gov to learn more and get covered beginning November 1st.
Then, be on the lookout for opportunities to help us spread the word about Open Enrollment in November and December.
