Enrolling in Quality and Affordable Healthcare Coverage

Everyone needs quality and affordable healthcare, especially people with lung cancer and chronic lung diseases like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis

.Have you recently lost Medicaid coverage? You may be eligible for lower premiums through the Health Care Marketplace. This coverage is affordable, and 4 out of 5 enrollees can find plans that cost less than $10 a month. For more information about recent changes in Medicaid coverage and what you can do to prepare, please visit www.lung.org/healthcare.

Open enrollment through Healthcare.gov runs from November 1 to January 15 in most states. If you or your child are eligible for CHIP or Medicaid or if you are getting married, having a baby, losing other insurance coverage or moving, you can enroll for healthcare at any time. Even if you haven't found a plan that works for you before, the Inflation Reduction Act extended financial assistance to help people afford quality coverage for another three years, so it's worth checking what you may qualify for.
