Arizona Marketplace health care insurance exchange info

Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

The Arizona Health Insurance Marketplace is found at the official government web site, HealthCare.gov. The Spanish language version is at CuidadoDeSalud.gov. [Update: The Obama administration is planning a soft launch for the Spanish-language version of HealthCare.gov in early December, after a two-month delay, a senior administration official told TPM Tuesday. Exclusive: Spanish CuidadoDeSalud.gov Set For Soft Launch Next Month.]

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild's office provides public service information that our local media does not, Health Insurance Marketplace Now Open:

The Marketplace, at HealthCare.gov and CuidadoDeSalud.gov, is online with costs and more detailed information.  Consumers have a choice of plans to compare.

With a single application, you can also see if you qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Those without Internet access can call 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to enroll.

Local groups that can help people navigate the Health Insurance Marketplace include:

El Rio Community Health Center – 3480 E. Brittania Dr, Suite 120  (520) 670-3909

Pima County Health Department – 3950 S. Country Club, Suite 100  (520) 724-9999

Tucson Urban League – 2305 S. Park Ave  (520)791-9522

Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce – 823 E. Speedway Blvd.  (520) 620-0005

United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona – 330 N. Commerce Park Loop , Suite 200  (520) 903-9000

St. Elizabeth’s Health Center – 140 W. Speedway Blvd., Suite 100  (520) 628-7871

The above agencies are the only qualified navigators and offer their services free of charge.  Do not provide your social security number or health information to anyone but those groups, after you’ve made contact. The government will never call you for information.

Small businesses with fewer than 51 employees have their own marketplace. Call 1-800-706-7893 (TTY: 1-800-706-7915) for questions about the Small Business Health Options (SHOP) Marketplace.

To find a community health center near you, go to aachc.org or call the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers at 602-253-0090. In southern Arizona, go to mypcap.org or call the Pima Community Access Program’s health hotline at 800-311-0627.

If you need help with your Marketplace application, you can contact us anytime by phone or live web chat for help with a Marketplace question, or go to LocalHelp.HealthCare.gov to find an in-person assister in your community.

Your application is first reviewed to determine whether you are Medicaid (AHCCCS) eligible. If you are, you will be enrolled in AHCCCS. If not, you may purchase insurance at the Health Insurance Marketplace. If you believe you are AHCCCS eligible, you can start the application process at the Health-e-Arizona Plus (HEAplus) web site.

Coveraz.org has links to resource materials and webinars of recent programs available online.

If you know someone who is uninsured, help them get covered.
