Navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace in Louisiana
When it comes to navigating the health insurance marketplace in Louisiana, it's important to remember:
- Enrollment is available during the Open Enrollment Period. This means you can't shop the health insurance marketplace in Louisiana at your own leisure. (Although, some circumstances apply where you can get insurance at other times of the year).
- If you can't afford coverage, you may be able to get a subsidy to lessen the cost. Most people qualify for reduced premiums based on income. This gives you more buying power. HealthMarkets can help determine if you are eligible.
You’re not alone in navigating the health insurance marketplace in Louisiana. HealthMarkets’ licensed agents can help you find affordable health insurance for you and your family.
