Five things you need to know if you plan to enroll in the health insurance marketplace

  1. Be sure you are visiting the government website!  Go to www.healthcare.gov
    (healthcare.com is not the correct website)
  2. Before signing up for COBRA, check your options at www.healthcare.gov
  3. Need help?  If you’ve never had health insurance before, it may be wise to seek help with your enrollment. Local people are available to help! (See flyer for local enrollment assistance)  They can help you understand the options and terms you may be unfamiliar with. A useful and credible website for finding local assistance is www.coveringwi.org
  4. This enrollment period ends Jan. 31, 2017 – but if you want your coverage to start Jan. 1 you must enroll before Dec. 15.
  5. If you choose to explore www.healthcare.gov on your own, TAKE NOTES! BE SURE to write down the username, password and any information you enter so that you do not forget them. Forgetting your log in information makes it very difficult for someone to help you and can cause much delay.
