Almost 4K in TX 28 Hidalgo County Have Signed Up, Received Health Coverage via Marketplace

“The area of Texas I represent has some of the highest rates of people without health insurance in the country.  Having affordable healthcare coverage provides peace of mind that an illness will not derail your family’s financial wellbeing.  With that financial security, families can spend more, benefitting the local economy and creating more jobs,” said Congressman Cuellar. “The next open enrollment period for healthcare coverage will begin on November 15th of this year and I encourage anyone without health insurance to explore their options in the Marketplace.  I thank the many partners who will help us get the word out once open enrollment begins and look forward to working with them.”

To date, more than 8 million Americans have signed up for private coverage through the Marketplaces, more than 3 million young adults have gained coverage through their parents’ plans, and hundreds of millions of Americans with employer-based coverage and Medicare have improved benefits, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

In addition, the ACA guarantees that Americans can never again be discriminated against because of a pre-existing condition, women can never be charged more for coverage because of their gender, and Americans will never be sold health insurance policies that disappear when they need coverage most.

You can get more information about open enrollment at the Marketplace by visiting HealthCare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596.
