Where do I fit in?
I don't have insurance.
The Affordable Care Act requires almost everyone to have insurance. If you can afford health insurance, but do not have or enroll in coverage, then you may have to pay a fee. A premium tax credit, can help lower the cost of your monthly premium, if you qualify.
Government Cost Sharing Reductions, may also be available to help lower the cost you would pay for a doctor visit or for a medication. You can also reduce “out-of-pocket costs” by seeing certain doctors, hospitals, and specialists, referred to as “preferred providers.” A Florida Blue agent can help you find out if you qualify for the Cost Sharing Reduction and enroll you in a plan that's best for you.
You can buy a Florida Blue health plan for 2018 coverage on these dates:
- October 1, 2017 – You can enroll in a plan directly through Florida Blue.
- November 1, 2017 – If you qualify for a premium tax credit, you can enroll in an eligible Florida Blue plan starting November 1, 2017.
