Need Health Insurance?

Despite what you may have heard, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — also known as Obamacare — is still the law of the land. There are many high-quality, affordable options for you to get health insurance coverage, and financial assistance is still available for those who qualify. However, you want to be sure to be ready to enroll or re-enroll quickly, as there are only 6 weeks to get covered.

While the window of time to enroll is shorter this year, you can still enroll in three easy ways: in person, online, or over the phone. This website is a resource to connect you with in-person support.

We will be updating this website as we get closer to the open enrollment period, which begins on November 1, 2017 and runs until December 15, 2017.

Plans offered through the ACA will be available in late October for you to preview. You will be able to enroll or re-enroll starting on November 1, 2017 and through December 15, 2017.

We all have a need for health care.  Having health insurance can give you peace of mind and help protect you (and your wallet) in case an unexpected illness or injury happens.  When you have health insurance, you'll have coverage for doctor visits, free preventative care, maternity care, emergency care and more.

Find Out What You Qualify For Today

Under the Affordable Care Act, there are lots of options.  If you're a U.S. citizen or you're a lawfully present immigrant, you could sign up for a health insurance plan through the health insurance marketplace during open enrollment. That means you could qualify for financial help (click here) to lower your monthly costs. Or, you could qualify for free or low-cost coverage through NJFamilyCare (click here).

If people in your household have different immigration statuses, those who are lawfully present can enroll through the marketplace. Family members who do not apply for coverage in the marketplace will not be asked about their immigration status.

Here are a few facts you should know about marketplace plans:

1.    The marketplace has new plans every year, so check out your options.
2.    Financial help is available (click here) to those who qualify.
3.    You can get free in-person assistance (click here) to help with your application. Many places offer assistance in languages other than English.

4.    All plans offered in the marketplace must cover the important stuff (click here): doctor visits, emergency care, maternity care, free preventive care, and much more.
5.    You cannot be turned down for health insurance based on a family member's immigration status. And the information you provide to the marketplace cannot be used for immigration enforcement.

Open Enrollment is from November 1, 2017 – December 15, 2017.  Explore your options.  Contact an enrollment assister today (click here) and get covered!

Open enrollment is ONLY SIX WEEKS this year, beginning on November 1, 2017 and ENDING on December 15, 2017
