Having healthcare is the law of the land as required by the Affordable
Care Act, which put in place comprehensive health insurance reforms to
improve access, affordability, and quality in health care for Americans.
The deadline for applying for a new health insurance policy or renewing
or changing an existing plan is coming up quickly, with January 31, 2016
the last day to enroll or make changes in your health insurance policy.
You can sign up for an affordable health insurance plan for 2016 that fits
your needs and budget through the online Marketplace. All of the more
than two dozen Marketplace plans available to Gallatin County residents
offer these essential health benefits: doctor visits, prescription drugs,
hospital visits, maternity and newborn care and preventive care. Some
plans cover other services such as vision, dental or medical management programs.
Monthly premiums, annual deductibles, maximum out-of-pocket expenses and
the amount of your premium tax credit all depend on the plan you choose.

ends and potential penalties kick in.
