The Affordable Care Act, also called the ACA or Obamacare was signed into law in 2010 by President Barack Obama.  The ACA was enacted to increase the quality and affordability of health insurance, lower the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage, and reduce the costs of healthcare for individuals and the government.

 

Who can sign up?

Anyone who is currently uninsured, including all U.S. citizens and those who are considered lawfully present to be in the United States.

 

When can I sign up?

  • Open enrollment takes place once a year, usually near the end of November/beginning of December.
  • Special enrollment periods are available for those with special circumstances, such as loss of insurance coverage or change in income. Learn more by visiting www.healthcare.gov.
  • NJ FamilyCare enrollment is available year round. If you think you qualify contact a counselor to sign up at any time or visit www.NJFamilyCare.org

 

How much will buying an insurance plan cost?

Coverage options are available through the Health Insurance Marketplace at multiple price points and coverage levels. Many who sign up will be eligible for tax credits, which help make monthly payments more affordable. The Kaiser Foundation offers a calculator to give you an idea of approximate costs. http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/
