Since 2013, the Affordable Care Act has helped LGBTQ people and families get access to quality, affordable health insurance. Thanks to the law, the
uninsured rate for low- and middle-income LGBTQ people has dropped by an overwhelming 35%. That means more people in our community have access to
medically necessary services they need, from life-saving HIV drugs to gender affirming health care.
The marketplaces are open for business and the ACA is still the law of the land. You can enroll (or re-enroll) in health insurance or switch plans at
HealthCare.gov. This year’s open enrollment period begins on November 1, 2017 and ends on December 15, 2017. This is a new deadline so
mark your calendar! If you do not enroll during this time, you may be locked out of health insurance until 2019.
Health insurance can be confusing, but you can get help from someone who understands questions about issues like same-sex coverage
and transition-related care. LGBTQ-friendly experts in your area are available to answer your questions thanks to our friends at Out2Enroll. Make an appointment today.
