Having worked as a personal injury attorney for most of his life, Joe has seen countless injured Mainers- he knows how essential the availability of healthcare is for everyday Mainers, which is why he’s promoting Enroll207, a project of the Maine Health Access Foundation, the state’s largest health care foundation. The purpose of enroll207 is to connect Mainers to certified assisters who can help review new options for health insurance through the Maine Health Insurance Marketplace. The Maine Marketplace is an online insurance store where policies offered by different companies can be compared side-by-side. You can apply for and buy health insurance coverage through the HealthCare.gov website using a single application.
Open enrollment is the time period when most people can pick a plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace. If you or your loved ones don’t have insurance, there’s good news: the current open enrollment period will continue until January 31, the deadline to sign up for a 2016 low-cost plan and avoid a fine at tax time. There are a variety of plans available this year that fit your needs and can fit into your budget. All of the plans on the Health Insurance Marketplace cover doctor visits, hospital stays, prescriptions, preventive care and more. Health insurance protects you and your family from the unexpected. An accident or injury can happen any day. When it does, the last thing you should have to worry about is how to pay for your healthcare or taking on medical debt.
If you’re a Mainer interested in utilizing the open enrollment period, Joe encourages you to visit the Enroll207 website.
