WE ARE HERE TO HELP
Beginning January 1st, 2014 most people will be required by law to have health insurance. UI Health is here to help make this an easy process for you.
How Can UI Health Help Me?
We can answer your questions over the phone, by email, or you can schedule an appointment to get help in person. We have many locations; there is probably one right in your neighborhood.
What Will I Need?
Before you call or come in for an appointment you will need:
- Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
- Employer and income information if you have a job (e.g., from pay stubs or W-2 forms-Wage and Tax Statements)
What Kind of Insurance is Right for Me?
You will enroll in either Medicaid or the Health Insurance Marketplace. The coverage you get depends mostly on how much money you make. Our counselors can help to make sure you are signing up for best plan for you and your family. To find out more about the two insurance options visit Health Care Reform at UI Health.
