Qualifying event may qualify you for insurance
Under the Affordable Care Act, everyone is required to have health insurance beginning in 2014.
Consumers can no longer be turned down for coverage because of a preexisting condition. And many lower- and middle-income households will qualify for help to pay their premiums.
However, the deadline for open enrollment for the Marketplace health insurance was March 31, and the next open enrollment period doesn't begin until November 15.
The birth of a child, change in marital status or loss of a job are examples of some of the "qualifying events" that may allow you to buy Marketplace insurance prior to November 15.
Having the right health insurance can be the difference between financial well-being and financial disaster. That's why Dupaco has partnered with CoOportunity Health to help members navigate insurance options.
