Health insurance deadline nears

Staff Writer

The open enrollment for purchasing health insurance through the government’s Health Insurance Marketplace comes to a close on Sunday, Feb. 15. The Arkansas Hospital Association (AHA) encourages Arkansans to beat the deadline.
A press release from the AHA states that in order to be eligible for health coverage through the marketplace the applicant must live in the United States, must be a U.S. citizen or national (or be lawfully present) and can’t be currently incarcerated. Some Arkansans may qualify for the Arkansas Private Option, which allows for Arkansas residents with incomes below federal poverty level ($32,913 annual income for a family of four and $16,104 for an individual) to purchase private health insurance at little-to-no cost.
