Health Insurance Enrollment and Education Programs

We know health insurance can be tricky. That’s why CHN has a Community Outreach Educator (COE)! Our COE can sign you up for health insurance and can answer your insurance questions. The COE can help you if you want to:

  • Apply for insurance
  • Renew your insurance plan
  • Change your insurance plan
  • See if you can get financial help to pay for your insurance


What is the Affordable Care Act?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is sometimes called ObamaCare. The ACA helps you get health insurance if you don’t have it. It also protects you if you already have health insurance. The ACA allows more people to get help with paying for their insurance and getting Medicaid.


What are my choices for health insurance?

The Marketplace is a website where you can see your health insurance choices online. Here, you can look for the best health plan for you and your family. On the Marketplace website, you can:

  • Apply for Medicaid. You do not have to pay a monthly bill for Medicaid.
  • Apply for Child Health Plus for your children under 19 years old. Your child does not need to be born in the United States to get this.
  • Apply for a qualified health plan that has a low monthly bill if you can’t get Medicaid.
  • Find out right away which plans meet your needs and budget.
  • See if you can get help paying for health insurance.
  • Compare your health plan options.


When can I enroll in a health plan?

There are different times to apply for health insurance. You can apply for:

  1. Medicaid anytime in the year!
  2. The Open Enrollment Period for 2018 is November 1, 2017 — January 31, 2018. Sign up for emails to get deadline reminders and other important information.

If you had a major life event and cannot get Medicaid, you don’t have to wait. Ask our COE if you can apply now!
