LGBT Newlyweds: Say “I Do” to Getting Covered
July 8, 2015
Is getting health coverage part of your wedding plan?
LGBT couples in all 50 states now have the right to get married. So if you plan on tying the knot soon, know this: You could also get covered!
As a newly-married couple, you:
- Do not have to wait for the next enrollment period to start (that’s November 1st, by the way). You’ll have a special 60-day window to sign up and pick a plan.
- Could enroll at any time if you qualify for free or low-cost coverage through Medicaid.
- Might qualify for financial help as well. Pam in Pennsylvania got covered for just $9.43 a month!
- Can avoid the fine. You could face a fine of $325 per adult or 2% of your income (whichever is greater) if you are not covered.
Getting married is a life-changing event and so is getting health coverage. So in sickness and in health, say, “I do” to getting covered.
