The Health Insurance Marketplace Is Now Open!

No doubt you've heard about the new Health Insurance Marketplace, a key part of the health care law that is now open for business through March 31, 2014.

All health plans offered on the Marketplace cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including physician visits, preventive care, hospital stays, and prescriptions. Plans also treat everyone fairly; discrimination against pre-existing conditions is banned.

But you probably still have questions. Like what is the Marketplace, and can you really get health insurance? Well we've got answers.

The best place for the latest, most accurate, information on the Marketplace is the updated website, HealthCare.gov. At the site, you can learn what it is, who can apply for insurance, how to get insurance, how to lower your costs, and more. If you own a small business, there's information for you, too.

Additionally, the Community Hospital of Anaconda has a Marketplace Specialist and Certified Application Counselor that is now available to help answer your questions, provide additional resources, and even walk you step-by-step through the application process.

Marketplace Specialist, Rob Kellegher's office is located at the front entrance of CHA and he can be reached by phone at 406-563-8552 or by email at rkellegher@chofa.net. Stop in Monday-Thursday or set up an appointment. Rob is also available to speak to local groups and organizations.
