Health insurance help should always be free.
Yes. Every year plan prices and options change. Also, the amount of financial help may change so it is important to update your financial and household information. If your income goes down or you have a baby, you may qualify for additional financial help. If your income goes up, you’ll want to make sure you’re not taking more financial help than you should.
Be sure to check to see if your favorite doctors, hospitals, medications, and pharmacies are still available if you renew your plan – sometimes networks change from year to year.
