Health Insurance Marketplaces Enrollment Begins Next Month

Open enrollment for the health insurance marketplaces begins Tuesday, October 1, 2013.  Coverage begins January 1, 2014, for those who enroll on or before December 15, 2013.  A few points to remember about the marketplace:

·         Insurance plans in the marketplace are offered by private companies and are called qualified health plans (QHPs)

·         All QHPs cover the same core set of benefits, called essential health benefits (EHBs)

·         No plan can turn you away or charge you more because you have an illness or medical condition

·         Although the plans are offered by private companies, the marketplace is run by either your state or the federal government; in some states, it is run by a combination of both.   

To learn about the marketplace in your state and how to apply, visit: or call: 1.800.318.2596, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
