Appointments available for ACA health insurance

Enrollment for 2023 health insurance through the ACA Marketplace ends Jan. 15. Folks who sign up now can have quality, affordable health insurance starting Feb. 1. 

Depending on household size and projected household income for 2023, individuals may qualify for premium tax credits that lower the out-of-pocket premium costs.  Many people can find plans with out-of-pocket premiums that range from $50 to as low as $0 per month. 

Need help sorting through all the options?  Local, free, unbiased in-person assistance is available to explain options and help with applying. Appointments are available in person or over the phone by calling Mountain Projects at 828.452.1447 or Pisgah Legal Services at 828.210.3404.

This project is supported by the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and the Dogwood Health Foundation.
