The Health Insurance Marketplace is where you and your family can shop for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. To assist you with this often difficult process, Greene County General Hospital is proud to offer a Patient Navigator through our partners at ClaimAid.
Open Enrollment is the ONLY time to enroll in a plan, change plans or apply for cost assistance for the ENTIRE year. The exception to this is Medicaid/HIP; eligible patients are able to enroll in these programs year round.
If you are already enrolled, it is important to check your coverage at this time. Not all plans auto-renew, and it may be necessary to renew or change your coverage.
Qualifying events may allow you to enroll outside of Open Enrollment. These events include:
Having a child
Losing Health Insurance
Moving to a New State
If you qualify, you have a 60-day period to enroll.
You are considered to have health insurance coverage if you have:
Medicare Part A or C
Any Job-Based Coverage
VA health coverage
Some other kinds of coverage qualify. Please ask your Navigator for more information.
Greene County General Hospital is a Gateway to Work partner!
Beginning in 2019, some HIP members will be required to work, go to school, volunteer, or participate in other qualifying Gateway to Work activities up to 20 hours per week for at least eight months per year.
