North Country HealthCare in Flagstaff will host a FREE health insurance enrollment event (Marketplace and AHCCCS) on Friday, February 13 from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm at their facility (2920 North 4th Street). This is one of the last times you can receive assistance before the February 15 enrollment deadline.
North Country HealthCare can assist you in enrolling in health insurance coverage. You may be eligible for a $0 premium plan, or a new kind of tax credit that lowers your monthly premiums right away. The Marketplace application process will also let you know if you and your family qualify for a subsidy that will cover all or part of your health insurance cost.
There are three important things to know about the Marketplace:
1. It’s the law. If you do not have health insurance you may be penalized.
- Last year, 84% of individuals who applied for insurance in the Marketplace received tax credits. Insurance may be more affordable than you think.
- Where can I go for enrollment assistance? North Country HealthCare helped enroll thousands of individuals in AHCCCS and the Marketplace last year. You may be closer to being insured than ever before. North Country HealthCare is here to assist you.
