When you shop the Marketplace, look for insurance plans that include UI Hospitals and Clinics and UI Health Care or you can continue to use our members.
The Affordable Care Act requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance beginning January 1, 2014. If you do not have health insurance, you are required to sign up during open enrollment, from October 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014. You can shop for plans by phone, through a broker, at on-site enrollment locations, or at the online Health Insurance Marketplace. If you choose not to enroll for insurance, the law states that you will face tax penalties.
This is health insurance made easy. One simple application guides you to the right plans.
Look for us on the Iowa and Nebraska Marketplaces! If you want to continue to receive care from one of our member organizations, we are included in CoOportunity UI Health Alliance products.
