On October 1, 2013, the federal Affordable Care Act opened new online health insurance marketplace (exchange) in North Carolina. 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.
