Have you been struggling with access to health insurance since losing your job?
Are you concerned that your COBRA coverage may run out soon? Daunted by the cost of obtaining a continued health insurance policy under HIPAA?
Fear not – with the rollout of the new health insurance exchanges, or marketplaces, under the Affordable Care Act, you now have guaranteed access to health insurance, regardless of health conditions or being unemployed, and may even be eligible for government tax credits to help afford the cost of insurance.
The current open enrollment for health insurance via the new online health insurance exchanges (think: a website marketplace for comparing policies and buying health insurance) started on October 1st, and continues through March 31st (those who purchase by December 15th will have coverage that takes effect on January 1st).
The next open enrollment period will be October 1st through December 14, 2014.
