Health Insurance Marketplace

What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

Since  October 1, 2013, the Health Insurance Marketplace has been a new way for people to get health insurance.

How much will insurance cost me in the Marketplace?

Based on income, many people will be able to get discounts off the cost of coverage through the Marketplace.  Not sure if you’ll get a discount? Kaiser Family Foundation has created an online calculator you can use to get a general idea about what insurance might cost you in the Marketplace.

Do you need help understanding the Marketplace?
