Beginning January 1, 2014, individuals and employees of small businesses will have access to affordable coverage through a new competitive private health insurance market – the Health Insurance Marketplace.
What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?
The Marketplace is designed to help individuals find health insurance that meets their needs and fits their budget. The Marketplace offers “one-stop shopping” to find and compare private health insurance options. Individuals and employees of small businesses may also be eligible for a new kind of tax credit that lowers their monthly premium. Open enrollment for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace begins in October 2013 for coverage starting as early as January 1, 2014.
How Can I Get More Information?
The Marketplace can help you evaluate health coverage options, including eligibility for coverage through the Marketplace and its cost. Please call 1-800-318-2596 or visit HealthCare.gov for more information, including an online application for health insurance coverage and contact information for a Health Insurance Marketplace in your area.
