Your Health Insurance

Open Enrollment is Over for 2014

If you don't have health insurance, and you missed the deadline for enrollment (March 31, 2014) find out what other options you might have at the federal government's web site

If you did sign up for health insurance, and you have a policy, here is more information about how to use it!

Having an Insurance policy helps you stay healthy in more ways than one. Now you don't have to wait to go to a doctor until you get seriously ill.  Preventive Care is what your doctor can do to help you from getting sick.  It's covered by most health insurance policies at no charge to you! 

Insurance policies, like taxes, can be confusing, especially if you've never been insured before. Use the glossary at, to see what they mean when they refer to deductibles, out-of-pocket maximums, copayments, and other unfamiliar words or phrases.
