Countdown Open Enrollment!

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). This law now makes  preventive care more accessible and affordable for many Americans. One year after the initial enrollment period, the ACA is working to provide affordable, accessible, and quality insurance to millions of Americans. Through the ACA, you can select from a variety of plans within the Healthcare.gov marketplace that cover essential health benefits, pre-existing conditions, recommended preventive care and much more. 


If you currently have health coverage through the Marketplace, it’s time to review your plan and decide if you need to make changes for 2015! Every fall, your health insurance company sends you a letter explaining changes to your plan for the coming year. You can choose to (1) stay in your current plan or (2) make changes.

If you are not on a current plan or have had a significant life event that has changed your insurance needs, make sure that you take the time during enrollment to sign up! 

If you have questions or need someone who can help you in person, you can find local help on the healthcare.gov help page
Or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. TTY users should call 1-855- 889-4325. The call is free.
