Whether you refer to it as the Affordable Care Act or Obama-Care, more than half a million Americans rely on it when it comes to taking care of themselves and their loved ones. However, many still have questions about what it covers and if it's right for them.
Carlos Messir, from Univista Insurance, explains Obama-care as an option for those who are unemployed and looking for care that they can afford. Since this option is based on your income and allows you to keep your doctor, it can take a lot of the fear and frustration out of shopping for insurance.
"It's an open market plan, you have a lot of different providers that are available to fit your needs," he says. "Whether you're over 65 and you need a specific specialist on the plan...if you're 18 with no medical history and you just need something to give you that peace of mind, that's also available."
At Univista they will work with you to make sure your insurance plan meets your needs, and allows you to pay the least amount possible.
Open enrollment for Obama-care has been extended due to the pandemic. It is now open until August 15, but Messir says the sooner you call the better.
