Health Insurance Market Place
Are you ready? The Health Insurance Marketplace is Coming
Centerville Clinics is here to HELP!!
No doubt you have been starting to hear about the new Health Insurance Marketplace, a key part of the health care law that will be open for business on October 1st. But you probably still have questions. Like what is the Marketplace, and can you really get health insurance? Well we have the answers.
The best place for the latest, most accurate, information on the Marketplace is the updated website, HealthCare.gov. At the site you can learn what it is, who can apply for insurance, how to get insurance, how to lower your costs and more. If you own a small business there is information for you too.
Starting this fall, the Marketplace will help you find health insurance that fits your budget and meets your needs with less hassle.
No matter where you live, you may buy insurance from private health plans that cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, hospital stays, preventive care and prescriptions. And plans in the Marketplace must treat you fairly; they cannot deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
With a single application, you can also see if you qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or savings you can use right away to lower your health insurance premiums.
Enrollment Starts October 1, 2013 Visit HealthCare.gov to Get Ready
www.HealthCare.gov is your best source of information about the Marketplace. You can read information that pertains to you, print checklists, and watch videos to help you get ready to apply and enroll.
You and your family can explore every qualified health plan in your area, and fill out an application when you are ready. You will be able to take control with better information, including details about benefits and prices presented in clear language you can understand, so you will know what your premiums, deductibles, and other costs will be before you make a choice.
Once you have decided on a plan, you do not need to go anywhere else. Starting in October, you will be able to enroll in the Marketplace directly for coverage that begins as soon as January 1, 2014.
