Health Care


 

 

Life is complicated. Enrolling in health insurance doesn’t have to be.
Open enrollment for healthcare ends on December 15. 

Did you know it’s time to sign up for health coverage for 2019? If you need health insurance, you can now enroll at HealthCare.Gov. But hurry, the deadline to enroll in a plan is December 15th – so don’t delay! The Rowan County Public Library is here to help answer your questions.

 

There’s a lot of confusion about the state of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), but the truth is the ACA is still the law of the land, and comprehensive health coverage including key consumer protections like no discrimination against people with pre-existing health conditions, is still available to consumers who need to get covered.

 

Most marketplace shoppers will qualify for financial help to lower their costs, too. In fact, 85 percent of current enrollees receive a tax credit to help lower their monthly premiums, and most pay less than $100/month for their plan.

And this year, there are new plans available at new prices. Even if you’ve looked before, it’s important to check out your options – coverage might be more affordable than you think.

Already covered? Then help us spread the word about open enrollment and make sure your friends and family #getcovered too. There is far less support for outreach and advertising this year, so it’s up to all of us to get the word out. Ask your friends if they’re covered, post on social media, and remind everyone that December 15th is the final deadline to sign up for coverage in 2019. Head to the library today!
