Open enrollment begins for Health Insurance Marketplaces

Posted on: 11/7/18

Health care coverage is an essential component of healthy communities, where all individuals reach their highest potential for health. Nearly 12 million Americans enrolled in 2018 health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplaces.

Open enrollment for 2019 coverage through the marketplaces has begun and will run only until Dec. 15. This is an opportunity to help individuals in all communities get covered for next year – either by re-enrolling in coverage or enrolling for the first time. America’s hospitals and health systems have long helped connect consumers with health coverage and will continue to do so as open enrollment gets underway.

Because coverage is so important, and can be confusing to access, it’s critical that all community stakeholders, including hospitals, help to make the enrollment process easy and accessible. For more information, including tools to use on social media, click here
