NCCHCA Encourages Consumers to Visit Community Health Centers for Assistance with Health Insurance Enrollment

Thursday, November 05, 2020

For Immediate Release:
Raleigh, NC

Contact: April Morgan, Morgana@ncchca.org

Marketplace Open Enrollment started November 1, 2020 and runs through December 15. Among the many ways that North Carolina’s 42 Community Health Centers serve their communities, assistance with health insurance enrollment is one of heightened importance during the current global pandemic. Consumers can visit getcoveredamerica.org or call 855-733-3711 to schedule an appointment with an enrollment assister (in-person, virtually, or by phone) to review their health coverage options and for assistance enrolling in a plan.

All plans offered through the Marketplace provide consumer protections, including coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, as well as essential health benefits, such as free preventive health services. Consumers should also know that nine in ten consumers in North Carolina receive help paying their monthly premium, and nearly six in ten receive help with lower deductibles, co-pays, etc.

Six insurers will be offering coverage through the Marketplace in North Carolina in 2021, up from four in 2020—giving consumers more choices next year. To see the plans available in your area, visit www.healthcare.gov/see-plans.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains the law of the land! NCCHCA encourages consumers to review their health insurance options for 2021 and enroll in coverage before Marketplace Open Enrollment ends on December 15, 2020.
