    Health Insurance Countdown - Get Yours Now!

    in Health

    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon this Saturday, January 31, 2015 and learn what you can do now to get affordable health coverage before the February 15, 2015 deadline and avoid a tax penalty this April. Call into the studio with your questions and/or comments: 347-945-7433.


    If figuring out your 2015 health insurance is still on your "To Do" list, here are the three things you need to know:



    It's not too late! Open Enrollment is...well, open! If you haven't applied for coverage, you still have time.
     
    Have coverage from last year? Check to see if your current plan is still the best one for you. Many carriers have changed their pricing and you may want to choose a different plan.
     
    Worried that health insurance is too expensive? Many people qualify for a tax credit subsidy that lowers the premium they pay each month. Example: subsidies are available for individuals with income between $11,670 and $46,680, or a family of four with income between $23,850 and $95,400.



    Open Enrollment for 2015 coverage runs through February 15, 2015. During this time you can sign up for new coverage, change plans, or find out if you can get help paying for your coverage.
