Healthcare Marketplace is Now Open
The Health Insurance Marketplace officially opened on November 1 and will be available through December 15. Now is the time to shop for new Marketplace coverage or you may choose to stay with your current plan.
You can access the site by going to www.HealthCare.gov or you can call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 and speak to a representative. There may be some people who would like a one-on-one appointment with an assister. Information for this is available at LocalHelp.HealthCare.gov.
When you go to the site, you will be able to do the following:
Update your application information for 2019 coverage.
Review your updated eligibility notice.
See if you qualify for new or different coverage.
Compare the available plans and costs.
Enroll in coverage for 2019.
It is important to make sure that your anticipated income for 2019 is entered correctly. If you estimate your 2019 income too low and qualify for a subsidy, you may have to return part of the subsidy when your 2019 income taxes are prepared. If your income does change considerably during the year, you should go to the Marketplace and update your information.
