Since open enrollment began on November 1, more than 250,000 Missourians signed-up for health coverage through the Missouri Health Insurance Marketplace that gives uninsured Missourians a way to compare plans and buy affordable health insurance.
As the holiday season ends and people set goals for a healthier 2016, there is still time to sign-up for quality health coverage through the Marketplace. Most Missourians are required to have health insurance or face a penalty. And most Missouri Marketplace enrollees qualify for tax credits to lower their costs.
ARCHS encourages community, faith-based, and small business leaders, employees in child care and social services industries, and those who serve low-income families to encourage people to sign-up before open enrollment ends on Sunday, January 31, 2016.
ARCHS is one of 700+ members of the Cover Missouri Coalition -- a project of the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) that aims to reduce the rate of uninsured Missourians to less than five percent in the next five years. In August 2015, ARCHS was awarded a grant from MFH as part of a new push to help increase awareness among those who remain uninsured.
