If you have uninsured friends or family members, we can help them sign up for coverage! Call to make an appointment with our application coordinator. 432-268-4855 Based on household income and dependents, your friends/family members may be eligible for health coverage at no cost through Medicaid. Others may be eligible for affordable health insurance on the Health Insurance Marketplace – and financial assistance towards the cost of premiums may be available from the government. This enrollment period runs November 1, 2017 – December 15, 2017. Comprehensive Insurance Coverage A person cannot be denied coverage because of a pre-existing health condition. Some of the health benefits on every plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace include: • free preventive care and wellness services • doctor visits • prescription drugs • hospital and emergency department care • lab services • chronic disease management • pediatric services The penalty fee for not having insurance has increased this year. If you can afford health insurance coverage, but don’t sign up, you may have to pay a penalty.
