The Health Insurance Marketplace – called the “Marketplace” – will help you get health insurance coverage that meets your needs and fits your budget. You can enroll on Nov. 1, 2016 through Jan. 31, 2017. Please review the information below on how you can apply.
The Marketplace is a new way to find a health insurance plan that you can afford. It can help you if you don’t have coverage or if you have it but want to look at other options. If you are enrolled in Parkland Financial Assistance, you need to see if you qualify for insurance through the Marketplace.
The Marketplace will tell you if you or your family members can get free or low-cost coverage through Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
When you use the Marketplace at www.healthcare.gov, you will be able to look at all of the health insurance plans in your area and compare your options. If you currently have insurance, you can also find out if you qualify for plans with a lower monthly payment and learn about plans with lower out-of-pocket costs for health care visits.
