Healthcare | United Way Monroe County
The United Way of Monroe County works with the local government to help people find, monitor and innovate affordable healthcare. Health insurance is an important way to prevent a subprime mortgage and the Affordable care Act (ACA) requires all US citizens to have health insurance.
You may be covered by insurance taken out through your employers or through the US Government's Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicare, Medicaid, Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise or Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Failure with health insurance can lead to a federal fine. In recent years, United Way has worked to expand navigator capacities in Monroe County as part of the ACA Enrollment Committee's effort to help individuals find the right health insurance.
Said sailors are state-certified individuals who have been educated to offer impartial assistance in registering inhabitants for marketplace coverage and state schemes. Visit www.healthcare. gov to request cover, see side-by-side comparison of schedules and price checking. Once you have reported on the marketplace, take these actions to make sure that you meet or possibly upgrade your 2019 schedule.
Would you like to find out more about the marketplace, the possibilities of health insurance and the registration procedure? The United Way of Monroe County will remind you to take the opportunity to review your schedule for changes and upgrades before re-registering. State-approved navigation guides are available if your schedule has been modified or you need help extending your registration.
