Get 2017 health coverage. Health Insurance Marketplace
November 1, 2016 kicks off the Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment season!
Social Security is with people through life’s journey. This includes spreading awareness about the Health Insurance Marketplace atHealthCare.gov. Twenty million Americans have gained healthcare coverage through the marketplace. Today the uninsured rate is the lowest it has been in history.
Open enrollment for 2017 coverage runs from November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017. To start the New Year with coverage you must enroll by December 15, 2016.
During open enrollment this year, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services expects over 13 million people to secure a health plan through the marketplace. Most of those who already have a plan are satisfied with their coverage overall — with over 60 percent of enrollees describing their coverage as good, very good, or excellent. However, many eligible people continue to remain uninsured. Please help us make certain that everyone who may qualify for coverage knows about their options!
Social Security is securing today and tomorrow for millions, and we welcome opportunities to talk about our programs. If you would like to explore having a Social Security representative speak at your event, please submit a request through our speaker page or contact Diandra Taylor at Diandra.Taylor@ssa.gov.
Thank you for helping us spread the word about the upcoming open enrollment period for the Health Insurance Marketplace and Social Security. We appreciate your support!
