More People Can Get Help Paying For Their Health Insurance
Financial help has increased and more people are now eligible to receive it.
The federal government increased financial assistance (subsidies) to help make health insurance more affordable through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Didn’t qualify for financial help in the past?
The ACA recently changed and more people qualify for help now, including those who made too much before and those who have access to coverage through a family member’s job.
Insurance At No Monthly Cost If You Qualify
More than 174,000 people in Florida are missing out on health insurance for $0 per month after financial assistance.1 You could be one of them.
The Real Value of Health Insurance
No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most of us will need medical care sometime during the year. Plus, health insurance helps keep you healthy! You’re covered for checkups, vaccines, yearly bloodwork and cancer screenings at no extra cost.
Did you know without health insurance you could pay...
$10,000 for an average ER visit at a Florida hospital2
$7,500 to fix a broken leg3
$30,000 for an average three-day hospital stay3
Hundreds of thousands of dollars for comprehensive cancer care.3
Having health insurance means you won’t have to pay the whole cost of care on your own, whether you have a simple stomach bug or a serious accident or injury.
