Last week to see if you qualify for free or low-cost health insurance

If you are uninsured, you may qualify for free or low-cost private health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) public marketplace. The special enrollment period ends on Aug. 15. Insureous agents will be happy to sign up for a plan, which could come with major subsidies to reduce your premiums.

About three in five uninsured Americans should be able to access premium plans, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Before that expansion, the government assistance was primarily available only to households with income from 100% to 400% of the poverty level. This cap is eliminated through 2022. The amount that anyone pays in premiums will be limited to 8.5% of their income as calculated by the federal marketplace exchange.

If you’ve collected unemployment at any point this year, zero-premium health plans that come with minimal or no cost-sharing — i.e., deductibles and copays — are available to you .

Call 904-295-8498 if you or someone you knows can qualify for this free or low-cost health insurance.
