If you don’t currently have health insurance through your employer or another private method, the US Government’s Affordable Care Act Website is currently offering OPEN ENROLLMENT for all health-care insurance plans and Medicaid through December 15. This means that you can obtain health insurance benefits, either through their private insurance exchange or through Medicaid with a few clicks of your mouse. This is the only time of year that open enrollment is available without a pre-existing triggering event (such as loss of previous insurance, marriage, divorce or child-birth).
If you’re struggling with substance abuse or mental health issues, now is the time to sign up for insurance and get those benefits activated so that you can receive treatment as soon as possible.
If you need assistance singing up there are resources available at the site or through private health-insurance brokers who can assist and who are paid by the government to do so.
Don’t delay, sign up today and get help as soon as you can!
