With the new health care policies that have been put into place, families must have insurance or pay a fine instead. This has caused many families to look for low-cost health insurance options that they may qualify for and that will allow them to receive the health care that they need.
If you are concerned about being able to get health insurance for yourself or your family, you can look to enroll in the Health Exchange. Community Health Center would love to help you enroll in the Health Exchange. You can contact their office for the information that you need.
Health Exchange Open Enrollment Period: November 15th, 2014
The open enrollment period begins on November 15th, 2014 and will end on February 15th, 2015. The entire purpose of the Health Insurance Marketplace is to help individuals and families find low-cost insurance coverage.
You’re Considered Covered If…
You are considered covered by a health insurance policy. You will not be fined if you have one of the following insurance policies already:
However, even if you do have one of these forms of insurance, it might be that you would like to see about a cheaper option. We would be happy to help you do that.
Health Exchange Application:
Community Health Center can help you fill out a Health Exchange Application and also help you know which policy you qualify for. There are three different categories of health insurance coverage, and we explain each one below:
Private Health Insurance Policies
These insurance policies are found through private health insurance companies. These tend to be the most expensive form of health insurance. They offer essential health benefits, preventative care, and care for current health problems.
Insurance Based on Household Income and Size
The next form of insurance coverage is a policy that costs less than the private health insurance policies. The cost for these policies is set based on your family’s household income level as well as the size of your family. Many people find that this insurance policy works well for them because it is often more affordable.
Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
The last form of insurance coverage available is Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This is the most-affordable option available on the market today. These policies cover families with very limited income.
If you’re wondering what type of insurance policy you would qualify for, Community Health Center of Snohomish would be happy to talk with you and help you find insurance coverage that is right for you. Many people become discouraged when they try and figure out their health insurance on their own. We can help you so that you won’t have to struggle through the lengthy policy requirements and confusing language.
