Navigating your insurance options
Details of health plan benefits and prices that will be offered through the Health Insurance Marketplace aren’t yet available online. But consumers can still begin to explore their options in advance of the Oct. 1 launch.
Here’s how it works:
- Go to HealthCare.gov and select “start now.” (For Spanish, go to CuidadoDeSalud.gov.)
- You’ll be asked to answer some basic questions about yourself including your age, what state you live in and whether your income falls above or below a certain threshold.
- Read about options that might apply to you, including preventive care benefits, federal tax credits, government health care programs and other information.
Alternatively, you can call a customer service representative for help at 800-318-2596. Hearing-impaired customers using TTY/TDD technology can dial 855-889-4325.
