Health Care Coverage and Iowa Navigator

Do you or your family need health care coverage? CCR&R hosted a webinar on November 16, offering a presentation from Iowa Navigator. They are a free, non-profit program available to all in-state residents and they offer free enrollment assistance with the Health Insurance Marketplace. This insurance option is an alternative when group health insurance is not offered.

The Health Insurance Marketplace offers options for people to get health insurance who can’t get it through a job, Medicare, Medicaid or another qualifying source. The Marketplace has a variety of private health insurance policies you can pick from. What you pay depends on your income. Most people will qualify for a new monthly tax credit (Advanced Premium Tax Credit) that will lower your monthly payments right away. Also, some people will qualify for help paying their co-pays and deductibles. Seven out of ten people will qualify for immediate savings to help pay their monthly premiums.

  • Defining what insurance options there are
  • Reviewing the enrollment process
