Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment efforts are in full swing in Ohio. The open enrollment period for coverage purchased through the federally-facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace began Nov. 15, 2014 and continues through Feb. 15, 2014. Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment activities are aimed at signing more eligible individuals up for health coverage and decreasing the ranks of the uninsured.
Health insurance marketplaces allow consumers to make comparisons among available health insurance plans to determine the best fit for themselves and their families. Through marketplaces, consumers are able to apply for and enroll in an insurance plan as well as determine whether they are eligible for tax credits and reduced cost sharing for health insurance.
The Center's December 2014 Policy Snapshot, Open Enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace: Guide for Consumers, provides information about available plans, covered health benefits, enrollment help and more.
