Insurance Enrollment

Why do I need health insurance?
At CHI Memorial, we believe having health insurance is one step toward a healthier, happier life.  

That’s why it’s important to enroll in health insurance.
The Affordable Care Act was created to ensure everyone can get the healthcare they need regardless of their budget, even if they are sick or have a prior health issue. If you do not enroll in health insurance, you will be required to pay a fee.

If you’re one of the remaining uninsured, start shopping for an insurance plan that fits your needs and budget – you may qualify for low-cost or free insurance.

For coverage starting in 2016, you can enroll now through January 31, 2016.

How do I enroll?
The many ways to enroll, including the following:

  • Online at healthcare.gov
  • Over the phone at 1-800-318-2596
  • By a paper application found online at marketplace.cms.gov

Spanish speakers can find assistance at cuidadodesalud.gov.

Which plan should I choose?
On healthcare.gov, you will be able to compare between different levels of healthcare plans from a variety of insurance providers. Each will have different amounts of coverage and different monthly premiums. Only one simple application is required.

How much will health insurance actually cost?
The cost of health insurance depends on your age, gender, income and tobacco use as well as the plan you choose.

What will my health insurance plan include?
All marketplace plans must cover the following list of preventive services without charging you additional fees (copayment or coinsurance), even if you haven't paid your yearly deductible.
However, you must receive these services from a healthcare provider in your network. Screenings are also available based on certain criteria and conditions.
