Helping you understand the Affordable Care Act and the Health Insurance Marketplace

The Affordable Care Act, also called health care reform or Obamacare, is designed to extend health care coverage to the uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions.

The Health Insurance Marketplace is the website where individuals, families and small businesses can see what health insurance plans are available for them. You can research and enroll in a health insurance plan online.

If you would like to talk to someone about this process, we have local, certified and specially-trained representatives available who will:

  • Outline all available options, so you can decide what plan it right for you
  • Explain the penalties if you don’t have coverage
  • Schedule time for any assistance you may need

These services are free and you can request a call back by filling out the form below or calling 1-800-472-8500.
