Health Care Reform (The Affordable Care Act)

You may be hearing a lot about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the North Carolina Health Insurance Marketplace (the "Marketplace"). All consumers - insured, underinsured and uninsured, who want to shop for policies, can access the Marketplace. Before you shop, there's important information you should know.

Many Marketplace health insurance policies will be very different from the policies sold today. In short, not all doctors and hospitals are part of every plan. It is important that you carefully select a policy that will reflect your doctor and hospital preferences.

Individuals applying for insurance in the Federal Marketplace can go online to apply at Some consumers will need help with the new application and enrollment process. The national number for assistance is 1-800-318-2596. Local help can also be found at Local Help. A person can also apply through the NC online application at ePASS.
