Get Personalized Assistance with the New Health Insurance Plans

Whidbey General has trained and certified a group of individuals to help you learn about and sign up for one of the new health insurance plans made available through the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) went into effect Oct. 1, 2013. The ACA seeks to expand access to health insurance, increase consumer protections, promote prevention and wellness, improve healthcare quality and curb rising healthcare costs.

Washington Healthplanfinder, created as part of ACA implementation, is an online marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses can find, compare and enroll in a health plan that fits their needs and budget. Washington Healthplanfinder is operated by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.

 

 

Coverage under the new plans begins Jan. 1, 2014. Open enrollment continues through March 31, 2014.

Washington Healthplanfinder provides:

  • Side-by-side comparisons of brand new health plans
  • Financial help to pay for copays and monthly premiums
  • Free and low-cost coverage is also available
  • Expert customer support online, by phone or in-person through an insurance broker or local organization such as Whidbey General
