The Affordable Care Act Program
We are still here and ACA is still the law!
Open enrollment has ended but you may still qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Call 1-855-733-3711 or schedule an appointment online by searching with your zip code below to find out more:
The ACA Program can help you get the facts and answer your questions. Pisgah Legal Services is a federally funded Navigator Organization, and we are here to help people and families understand their options for affordable health insurance. Despite proposed changes ACA is still the law and coverage is available for those who qualify.
Another resource for people in North Carolina is the NC Get Covered website.
Medicaid and NC Health Choice accept applications year round. Apply at your local Department of Health and Human Services (DSS) or www.epass.nc.gov.
Many people qualify to enroll OUTSIDE of open enrollment! This is called a “Special Enrollment Period.”
Married? Lost your job and health insurance? Moved to a new area? These are just a few of the examples—there are many more. Schedule an appointment today to see if you qualify to enroll outside of open enrollment.
