Officials encouraging Hoosiers to enroll in Marketplace

TERRE HAUTE — Uninsured Hoosiers have less than two weeks to meet an important deadline with the federal Health Insurance Marketplace. The Indiana Hospital Association, the Indiana Primary Health Care Association and Covering Kids and Families of Indiana, Inc., are encouraging people in need of coverage starting on Jan. 1 to apply through the program operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services before Monday.

The six-month open enrollment period for the first year of this program runs through March 31. However, in order for an individual to be covered on Jan. 1, they must sign up and make the first payment to a qualified health plan by Monday. Hoosiers will still be able to enroll through the end of March, but many health care organizations across the state are encouraging Hoosiers not to wait.

“Community health centers have employed and trained more than 100 navigators, all of whom are available throughout the state to assist Hoosiers in selecting the right option for themselves and their families,” said Philip Morphew, CEO of the Indiana Primary Health Care Association.

To find a list of community events scheduled to help people through the process, visit www.ckfindiana.org/calendar.

To enroll in the Indiana Health Insurance Marketplace, or for more information and assistance from a certified individual, Hoosiers can access healthcare.gov.
