Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Is Here – Ends on Dec 15th!

As healthcare professionals we are acutely aware of the need for health insurance coverage. The ACA marketplace is now open!

The current ACA enrollment period will continue until December 15th and we need to get the word out. Visit U.S. Senator Booker’s webpage to learn more on how to get covered:  https://www.booker.senate.gov/getcovered/.

We know that having health care coverage:

  • Cuts down on expensive emergency room visits;
  • Makes people more likely to visit the doctor for early treatment which prevents more serious health issues;
  • Keeps people healthy with preventive care visits, vaccines and immunizations;
  • Provides access to affordable prescription drugs.

Open Enrollment only happens once a year and that time is now. We all must do our part to spread the word to ensure that those who need coverage know they can enroll. Millions of Americans count on HealthCare.gov for quality, affordable health insurance.
