Affordable Care Act:
What does it mean and what do I need to know?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is national legislation which makes numerous changes in how health care is offered to many Americans. For a general overview, see the following video:
A key feature of the ACA is the availability of new health insurance options (Qualified Health Plans) which can provide better insurance at a more affordable price for many Americans. These options are provided through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Individuals have until March 31, 2014 to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan through the Marketplace for 2014. To have Marketplace insurance coverage that begins in January 2014, individuals must enroll by December 23, 2013.
Residents of Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi will be able to shop for these options on the national Marketplace websites www.healthcare.gov/ or in Spanish www.cuidadodesalud.gov/es/ . They can call also the national 24 hour hotline at 1-800-318-2596 (TTY 1-888-871-6594) for information and assistance in choosing a plan .
Call LINC/2-1-1 at 2-1-1 (alternate numbers 901-415-2790 or toll-free 1-855-354-4211) for information on where to get in-person assistance with Marketplace enrollment, how to access public computers, etc.
