Affordable Care Act

If you haven't applied for insurance on before, here's what you need to know about the Health Insurance Marketplace (sometimes known as the health insurance "exchange").

  1. 2020 Open Enrollment runs from November 1 through December 15, 2019
    • Plans sold during Open Enrollment start January 1, 2020.
    • After December 15, you can enroll in 2020 health insurance only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
  2. The Health Insurance Marketplace is for people who don't have health coverage
    If you don't have health insurance through a job, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source that provides qualifying health coverage, the Marketplace can help you get covered.
    • If you have job-based insurance: You can buy a plan through the Marketplace, but you'll pay full price unless your employer's insurance doesn't meet certain standards. Most job-based plans do meet the standards.
    • If you have Medicare: You can't switch to Marketplace insurance, supplement your coverage with a Marketplace plan, or buy a Marketplace dental plan. Learn about Medicare and the Marketplace.
  3. What you pay for insurance depends on your income. Call Kirk Klaas today at (803) 802-7507 to get professional assistance from a local expert. Your savings depend on your expected household income for the year. Based on your income estimate, we'll tell you if you qualify for:
    A health insurance plan with savings based on your income
    • You may qualify for a premium tax credit that lowers your monthly insurance bill, and for extra savings on out-of-pocket costs like deductibles and copayments.
    • The plans are offered by private insurance companies with a range of prices and features.
    Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  4. You can apply for coverage by contacting Kirk Klaas at (803) 802-7507 or email to get professional guidance from a local expert. Kirk will take the time to explain the different plan options and work hard to find the best health coverage for your situation.
