LOUISIANA HEALTHCARE NAVIGATORS
An innovative marketplace is here for Louisianians to compare and enroll in health insurance. Having insurance is an important way to stay healthy and to pay for healthcare if you get sick or injured. Health insurance can not only provide care to keep your body healthy, it also protects your peace of mind—you can rest assured that you will have help when you need it most.
You may have thought you couldn’t afford health insurance, but now you can shop for health insurance that meets your healthcare needs and financial realities. The federal law called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides a number of ways for individuals and employers to help make coverage more affordable. For individuals, financial assistance is available on a sliding scale, with more support for those who earn less. Louisiana Healthcare Navigators will help you determine if you qualify for these types of assistance programs.
The Louisiana Healthcare Navigators can help you and your family compare and choose health coverage that best fits your needs and budget. We can help make health coverage more accessible and easier to understand, so you’ll have more choices, more control and more access to health insurance than ever before.
Enrollment is open now and coverage can begin as early as January 2014.
The date by which you need to enroll in a plan in order to get coverage on January 1 has been extended from December 15 to December 23.
This extension will allow consumers more time to review plan options, talk with their families, providers or enrollment assisters, and enroll in a plan. CMS understands the technical challenges have made comparing plans more difficult and they want to give consumers as much time as possible.
Louisiana Healthcare Navigators is a consortium of the four Area Health Education Centers in Louisiana. Our collaboration was created to help you get health coverage to protect yourself and your loved ones.
