Over 500,000 Americans Enrolled During COVID-19 Special Enrollment

Everyone qualifies for this enrollment period if they don’t already have coverage. So if you still need coverage or know someone who does, make sure to check out our page on COVID-19 special enrollment.

I am buying insurance through my employer and cannot afford necessary visits to Specialistls. I am not getting the medical help I need and truly suffering. I also have addiction to street drug opiates and need MAt I would like to try methadone instead of suboxone. I was told under my plan that it would cost $40 a day to be on methadone. Actively using would be cheaper.
