I’m healthy and don’t need health insurance
Health insurance helps keep you healthy! You get checkups, vaccines, yearly bloodwork and cancer screenings at no extra cost. Plus, it pays part of your medical bills if you get hurt or sick. The average cost of an ER visit at a Florida hospital is $10,0001 and cancer treatments can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.2
I can’t afford health insurance
4 out of 5 people can find an Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance plan for a $10 or less monthly payment, if you qualify.3 And now, if you get your health coverage through your job, your family members may qualify for an ACA plan with financial assistance.
I earn too much to get financial assistance
More than 174,000 uninsured people in Florida who earned too much before can now get financial help. The cost of an ACA Marketplace plan can’t be more than 8.5% of you family income—and many will pay less!4
Finding a plan is too confusing
Licensed health insurance agents and navigators can walk you through your options and help you enroll in a plan. Health insurance agents will not charge you a fee to help you. You can visit your preferred insurance plan’s website to find one near you.
