The period for open enrollment is drawing to a close. The last day for open enrollment is March 31, 2014. After this period, an individual (or family) wanting medical benefits must wait for a qualifying event (marriage, childbirth, loss of employment, etc.) or wait until the next open enrollment period to sign up for benefits.
Individuals or families wanting benefits to begin on March 1, 2014, must complete registration by February 15, 2014, to guarantee coverage.
Healthcare.gov is the federal website (often referred to as an exchange or marketplace). Indiana elected to use this website so a family who qualifies for the premium subsidy must go through this website in order to qualify for the reduced rates.
The government has restrictions for who qualifies for the subsidy. Below is a grid which shows the household size and maximum household income allowed.
Household Size Maximum Household Income
If you meet these qualifications and are interested in purchasing a policy through the exchange, please know that there are other qualifications, too. For more information, please call Eric at (317) 815-5501, ext. 2
Restrictions on Policies Available to Purchase
The policies available through the exchange are typically not available if the patient is already covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare.
