A primary goal of the Affordable Care Act is to help the uninsured and those who meet eligibility requirements gain access to quality, affordable healthcare. Central to this goal is the creation of the Health Insurance Marketplace. Through the Marketplace, eligible Americans can now enroll in a health plan to get coverage that starts in January 2018.
What is the Marketplace?
The Marketplace is a destination where consumers can compare insurance options in simple, easy to understand language. At the Marketplace, consumers will be able to compare insurance options based on price, benefits, quality and other factors with a clear picture of premiums and cost-sharing amounts to help them choose the insurance that best fits their needs.

Choosing a health insurance plan can be complicated. There are so many things to consider – premiums, co-pays, deductibles, out-of-pocket costs, provider networks, drug formularies.
Free, in-person help is available to guide you through the application process and help you qualify for discounts that make coverage affordable for nine out of ten South Carolinians. In order to schedule an appointment, visit the website at www.signupsc.com or call (888) 998-4646.
But time is short. Open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace for 2018 coverage is November 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017. So don’t wait to get help to renew your current coverage or get covered for the first time.
