Having trouble finding health insurance that fits your needs and your budget? Look no further than the Health Insurance Marketplace.  There are new, affordable insurance options available for people without insurance.

No matter where you live, you may buy insurance from private health plans that cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, hospital stays, preventive care, and prescriptions. Plans in the Marketplace must:

  • Treat you fairly; they can’t deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition
  • Show the costs and what is covered in simple language with no fine print

Financial help is also available so you can find a plan that fits your budget.

To find the latest, most accurate, information about the Marketplace visit www.healthcare.gov or learn more and get ready by contacting one of the USF Health Insurance Marketplace Navigators at (813) 803-0628.

Note that participants must enroll by December 15, for coverage effective January 1 and Marketplace open enrollment period ends February 15.
