Health Insurance Marketplace

Pines Health Services offers free assistance to all community members interested in securing affordable health insurance through the Federally Facilitated Marketplace. Join over 79,000 Mainers who have enrolled in a plan and received financial assistance in paying for their premiums in 2016. 

Did you know that 85% of enrollees qualify for financial assistance and, more than half of the enrollees find plans that cost between $50.00 and $100.00 a month?
Pines Health Services has trained friendly Certified Application Counselors who will sit with you privately and help you enroll in a plan that meets your needs. Our counselors will demystify the confusion about health insurance, the premium tax credits, and the penalty for not having health insurance. They are available for appointments that fit your schedule including early evenings and even Saturdays. Call Patti Dorman at 498-1684 to make an appointment or have your questions answered.

Enrollment for 2017 begins on November 1, 2016. The end of enrollment for 2017 coverage is January 31, 2017, unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

We advise everyone to enroll before December 15th so your policy will be effective January 1, 2017.

Marketplace Health Insurance has helped 12.7 million individuals enroll in secure, affordable health plans since 2014 and more than half of those enrollees are repeat policy holders, indicating that the plans are not only satisfactory but affordable. Currently, the uninsured rate for individuals in the nation is at a record low. Data shows that more than half of those currently uninsured (which is less than 10%) qualify for a premium tax credit to lower their premiums and they don’t even know it!

Call us at 498-1684 with questions or to set up an appointment. We are here for you to get you the best premium possible. It’s worth the call!
