It is the third open enrollment period to obtain coverage in the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Marketplace. From now through January 31, 2016, people who are uninsured or want to update and review their coverage options, can go to healthcare.gov or receive free, in-person health insurance education and enrollment help from Healthcare Navigators. In 2015, 90% of Marketplace enrollees in Wisconsin received a tax credit and saved, on average, $312 per month.
On this program, Lindsay Swindall and Sara Finger describe the enrollment process this year and the emphasis on helping people understand not only their insurance plan options but the benefits of coverage and how to use their insurance once it is obtained.
