What are your options for Healthcare Insurance?
As a result of the COVID pandemic, too many individuals and families are finding themselves faced without healthcare insurance. If that is you or you know someone, share this message for their reference. There are options available based on your financial situation. There are steps you can take if you are in need.
Your first step is applying through the Marketplace; you might qualify for one of the following options from Healthcare.gov:
- “A Marketplace insurance plan. You may qualify for premium tax credits and savings on deductibles, copayments, and other out-of-pocket costs based on your household size and income. Some people with low incomes may wind up paying very small premiums. Learn about getting lower costs on a Marketplace insurance plan.
- Medicaid provides coverage to millions of Americans with limited incomes or disabilities. Many states have expanded Medicaid to cover all people below certain income levels. Learn more about Medicaid and how to apply.
- Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP provides coverage for children, and in some states, pregnant women, in families with incomes too high for Medicaid but too low to afford private insurance. Learn more about CHIP.”
