The Marketplace is a new way to find health coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. With one application, you can see all your options and enroll. When you use the Health Insurance Marketplace, you’ll fill out an application and find out if you can get lower costs on your monthly premiums for private insurance plans.
You’ll find out if you qualify for lower out-of-pocket costs. The Marketplace will also tell you if you qualify for free or low-cost coverage available through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Open enrollment starts October 1, 2013. Plans and prices will be available then. Coverage starts as soon as January 1, 2014. The Health Insurance Marketplace is sometimes known as the health insurance “exchange.”
Our experienced agents at Benchmark Broker can help you find coverage for your employees that fit your needs and budget.
