What You Need to Know About the Affordable Care Act

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

On October 1, 2013 the federal Affordable Care Act will open a new online health insurance marketplace (exchange) in NC.  In the new NC Health Marketplace:

  • Plans cover what you need: maternity care, emergency, hospitalizations, prescriptions and more.
  • Financial help is available for many people so plans will fit your budget.
  • You can get expert help for free either online, by phone or in person.
  • You cannot be denied or charged more for a pre-existing health condition.
