This Saturday is the deadline to get health insurance for next year. We're experts and are here to help!
UPDATE 12/13: And we're done! Thanks everybody - glad we were able to help so many people. We're hunkering down to get as many people enrolled before the deadline on Saturday. If you still need coverage go to www.healthsherpa.com and use the anonymous calculator to figure out what you qualify for. You can also call us at (855) 772-2663.
Parting thoughts for those of you still on the fence:
We have now enrolled 400,000 people in ACA coverage since November 1st. Those 400k people will receive over $2 billion in government subsidies to help them pay for health insurance next year.
Of those 400,000: - 1 out of 4 will pay $0 a month next year for comprehensive on-exchange health coverage. - 1 out of 3 will pay less than $10 a month. - Half are paying under $30 a month. - 2/3rds are paying under $75/month.
Healthcare in this country is insanely expensive, but for many of you, the ACA makes it much more affordable. There are literally millions of people who qualify for affordable coverage and have a little over 48 hours left to enroll. Of the ones who don’t, thousands will face medical bankruptcies and suffer because of inadequate access to healthcare.
Many of you, your friends, and loved ones could avoid all that by just taking the 15 minutes it takes to sign up. Please make sure you have at least tried to sign yourself up, and do what you can to spread awareness of the upcoming deadline.
This Saturday, December 15th is the deadline to get health insurance for next year in most states, so if you live in the US and don’t get insurance through your job, parents, or something like the VA or Tricare, now would be a good time to sign up.
