The law still states that you'll pay a tax penalty if you don't have coverage. So until that changes, stay enrolled in a health plan and get the care you need when you need it.
Where do I fit in?
I don't have insurance.
The Affordable Care Act requires almost everyone to have insurance. If you can afford it but don't have it, you might pay a fee. A premium tax credit can help lower the cost of your monthly premium if you qualify.
You can lower out-of-pocket costs by seeing doctors, hospitals and pharmacies in your health plan's network. Talk to a Florida Blue agent to get help enrolling in the plan that's best for you.
You can buy a Florida Blue health plan for 2019 coverage on these dates:
- October 1, 2018 – You can enroll in a plan directly through Florida Blue.
- November 1, 2018 – If you qualify for a premium tax credit, you can enroll in an eligible Florida Blue plan starting November 1, 2018.
