You may have new ways to get health insurance for 2014. The changes include new options that can make it easier for you to shop for coverage, especially for individuals and families who could not afford or get coverage before.
Where To Go For Health Insurance Coverage
- You can enroll in a plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace at healthcare.gov. This online shopping website will be available starting in October 2013.
- You can buy a plan directly from a health insurance company such as your local Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan, or from a broker who may represent several insurers.
- You can enroll in an employer-sponsored plan if your employer offers group coverage. Be sure to check with your employer’s human resources department for details on your options.
- You may be able to qualify for a government plan. When you apply for health coverage on the Health Insurance Marketplace, you may find out that you qualify for a low-cost or free government program, such as Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
