HEALTH INSURANCE MARKETPLACE
The federal Affordable Care Act has created a Health Insurance Marketplace to help eligible individual, families and small businesses to find health insurance options. The Marketplace allows consumers to access accurate information in easy-to-understand language and to make apples-to-apples comparisons before they make an insurance plan choice.
Using the Marketplace may make health insurance premiums more affordable by allowing the household to claim a credit on their income taxes. This tax credit can be used right away to help pay the cost of monthly premiums. The Health Insurance Marketplace is the only place to get these important tax credits.
Persons who do not have health insurance coverage may have to pay a penalty. Some people may qualify for an exemption from this fee.
ICAP staff, called Navigators, can provide hands-on personal assistance for persons using the Marketplace. The Navigators are trained professionals who are familiar with the Marketplace and will help consumers to determine their best option for health care coverage, including methods of making health insurance coverage more affordable. For more information regarding the Health Insurance Marketplace, or to contact a Navigator, please call 1-855-371-4987 or visit your local ICAP office.
