Deadline for Coverage is Fast Approaching
Uninsured Arkansans have until December 15 to enroll in a health insurance plan and avoid a federally mandated penalty on 2017 tax returns.
Individual health insurance plans are available at myARinsurance.com and are designed to meet the needs of Arkansas families and to provide a variety of options to fit household budgets.
Standard health care benefits include inpatient care, outpatient services, and prescription drugs. The plans also emphasize the importance of preventative care and screenings, most of which do not require a co-payment. Most importantly, there are no lifetime limits and no restrictions for pre-existing conditions. And, financial help is available to help pay for the cost of insurance.
Help in navigating the process and selecting appropriate health insurance options can be obtained through agents, brokers and other licensed experts who are located in almost every community in Arkansas. Additionally, a hotline is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and is staffed by trained professionals. The number is 1-844-355-3262.
