QUESTION

I received a call/mailer selling me new coverage that is much cheaper than what is available on healthcare.gov. How do I assess my options?

ANSWER

Healthcare.gov is the only place you can purchase coverage that is guaranteed to provide all the consumer protections of the Affordable Care Act. Proceed with caution when evaluating options outside of the health insurance marketplace, as there have been reports of fraudulent activity and deceptive practices. In order to evaluate your options outside of the marketplace, contact your state’s Department of Insurance for a list of reliable brokers who can assist you in assessing your options. Always insist on getting plan documents to review prior to buying a plan, particularly when purchasing a plan outside of the marketplace.
