I signed up for Obamacare last year and have had it ever since. I am on Horizon, NJ health. Do I have to re-enroll in insurance to keep it? Or do I just keep it?


Whether you have Marketplace coverage, Medicaid, CHIP, or another coverage type you'll need to verify your enrollment every year. Some ObamaCare plans re-enroll automatically, some don't. Verifying will allow you to not only ensure your plan is enrolled, but will also let you see other coverage options. You may end up getting more cost assistance or a better plan.

Contacting a public hospital is always a good bet, if it is an emergency just show up. Otherwise sometimes Medicaid is an option, you can contact the state Medicaid department for that. For all else, try starting with Healthcare.gov and contacting them.

i think we would all be better off if you just called it by it’s real name affordable care act…is there a problem with or is a political ploy ?

I totally agree, the Affordable Care Act is the name that should be used…. the problem is that many only know the term ObamaCare. On our site we try to reach people with the term they know and then help them to learn about what the Affordable Care Act really is. It is a bit of a balancing act.

Remember it was those who opposed the ACA who used the term “ObamaCare” initially, a ploy to get people to associate Obama with healthcare reform to make it easier to turn conservatives against the law. Their strategy worked rather well, and certainly a complex situation was created.

We have been able to reach countless people due to their buzzword, but I fear that attempts to break to cognitive barrier and get people to see that the underlying ACA was actually a good thing have not been as successful as I’d once optimistically hoped.
