How can I get insured?
We’re here to help you find out more about where to buy health insurance and how to get help paying for it.
Where can I buy insurance?
Starting October 1, 2013, you can buy one of the new health care plans from an insurance company, like Florida Blue, or through the government’s health insurance Marketplace.
We can help you understand your choice of plans on the health insurance Marketplace, plus other options for health plans through Florida Blue. We can also help you apply for and enroll in a plan that works best for you.
The amount of benefits provided depends on the plan selected and the premium may vary with the amount of benefits selected.
How can I get help paying for insurance?
The government may help you pay a part of the cost for your health care plan. This is called a health care subsidy.
The government will look at things like:
- Your household income
- Your family size and individual ages
- Where you live
- Tobacco use
They’ll use the information to decide if you qualify for help paying for your health care plan, and how much of a health care subsidy you can get. If you qualify, the subsidy will be paid directly to the insurance company and lowers the cost of your monthly health plan premium.
