Staying healthy is important. This Thanksgiving, give yourself the peace of mind that comes with having health insurance. You have until December 15, 2018 to enroll in or change health insurance for 2019.
Why bother with health insurance?
- Health insurance provides financial protection in case you have a serious accident or illness. For example, a broken leg can cost up to $7,500. Health coverage can help protect you from high, unexpected costs.
- With Marketplace coverage, you’ll get access to preventive services — like shots and screening tests — at no cost to you. Getting recommended preventive services is a key step to good health and well-being.
- When you apply for insurance using the Health Insurance Marketplace®, you’ll find out if you qualify for savings that can make insurance less expensive. Before you apply, select your household size, state, and income range to see if you may qualify for financial help.
