Questions about the new health insurance? We can help.

The Affordable Care Act is about to make health insurance fairer and more affordable than ever.

  • More financial help—could even be FREE
  • Every health plan will cover doctor visits, hospitalization, emergency room care, maternity care, and prescription drugs
  • You can’t be turned down because of pre-existing conditions

The deadline to sign up for a health plan is March 31st. If you have CommCare, you may need to act by Dec 15th to ensure coverage in January. Got questions? Need help?
