Health Insurance Marketplace Assistance
Lancaster General Health is now helping provide health insurance enrollment assistance to our uninsured patients.
According to the Affordable Care Act, all U.S. citizens must have health insurance coverage or pay a penalty. Based on household income and dependents, you may be eligible for insurance at low or no cost. Health insurance plans in the Marketplace offer comprehensive coverage, from doctors to medications to hospital visits. Some plans provide only dental benefits. Marketplace plans are called qualified health plans (QHPs). You can compare all your insurance options based on price, benefits, quality, and other features that may be important to you, in plain language that makes sense. Open enrollment is from November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017.
Lancaster General Health Can Help!
If you are uninsured, Lancaster General Health Certified Application Counselors (CAC) can assist you in understanding your medical insurance coverage options and help facilitate enrollment.
There is no fee to meet with a CAC.
To schedule an appointment, call Lancaster General Health at 717-544-4953.
