Do you want a health plan that better suits your needs? Some may be seeking health insurance for the first time. It is that time of year to look at what you have and reevaluate your health care needs. Health insurance open enrollment is here.
The Affordable Care Act made obtaining health insurance possible for millions of Americans. Regardless of your health history, you cannot be turned down for coverage. From now until February 15, you have an opportunity to enroll for coverage, or switch to a plan that better suits your needs.
AARP reminds you, this is not for Medicare. Medicare beneficiaries can go to www.medicare.gov or www.aarp.org for information on Medicare open enrollment. AARP also has information on what the health care law can do for you at www.healthlawanswers.org
Listen to this week’s Real Life, when Lee Dixon, Project Director, North Carolina Get Covered, as he explains how open enrollment works and how people can find enrollment assistance. Check out the program on the audio link or on your local Real Life radio station.
