Updates on Health Insurance Marketplace
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have announced the following delays on the Health Insurance Marketplace, which may affect your enrollment in health insurance coverage for 2014. With any new program of this magnitude, unexpected delays are not unusual.
- Online Enrollment Delayed on Spanish-Language Website — Online enrollment on the Health Insurance Marketplace will not be available on the Spanish-language website . You can still apply over the phone with a Spanish-speaking Call Center representative.
- Online Exchange delayed for Small Businesses; Paper Application Still Available — Online enrollment for the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) will not be available until November. The SHOP is a Marketplace for business owners who employ 50 or fewer full-time employees.
If you need health insurance right now, or if you need coverage for January 1, 2014 and don't think you qualify for financial assistance, you can buy directly with us.
We're working closely with CMS and will continue to give you the information you need to help you understand the new health care law.
You can explore Health Care Reform and You and sign up for updates to stay informed about changes to health care and the upcoming open enrollment.
