Open Enrollment for health insurance has begun
MOBILE, Ala. — The Marketplace Open Enrollment Period on https://www.healthcare.gov begins today. Consumers who enroll by midnight December 15 can get full year coverage that starts January 1, 2024.
This year, 13 million Americans will continue to save an average of $800 per year on their health insurance. Four out of five customers will be able to find a plan for $10 or less after subsidies. Consumers with coverage through HealthCare.gov are encouraged to return and shop to see if another plan better meets their needs at a lower cost.
The Mobile County Health Department and Family Health, its primary care division, have Certified Application Counselors ready to assist. The counselors have been trained and are able to help consumers as they look for health coverage options through the Health Insurance Exchange. They can assist consumers in completing eligibility and enrollment forms. Assistance by the Certified Application Counselors is free to consumers.
Certified Application Counselors can be found at all Family Health centers conveniently located throughout Mobile County. You may visit https://mchd.org/family-health/#locations for a list of sites, or call directly at 251-445-8632 for the Patient Assistance Department.
