Be sure to talk to your patients about the March 31 Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment deadline.
March 31 is the last day for patients to enroll for health insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace until November 2014. The Health Insurance Marketplace offers uninsured patients options to research, compare, and purchase comprehensive health insurance plans.
As a family physician, you have the opportunity to help your patients understand the changing health care landscape so they can make coverage decisions that are appropriate for their health care needs. During patient visits, continue to discuss the insurance options available through the Marketplace and remind them to enroll by March 31. To facilitate and supplement your conversations, additional information on understanding the Health Insurance Marketplace can be found on FamilyDoctor.org(familydoctor.org).
