Where Can I Find Out More About the Marketplace?

There is a lot of information out there that can be difficult to sort through. Here are a few resources we have found helpful in providing details on the insurance marketplace, what to expect, and how to sign up:

  • Healthcare.gov –the federal government’s official website for consumer information on the marketplace and the health care law overall.
  • Marketplace.cms.gov – another federal resource with explanations, checklists, and official forms, applications, and language materials.
  • Be Covered Texas” – a bilingual English-Spanish website that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas set up to help Texans understand how the marketplace will work here and get signed up. The site also offers materials like printable fact sheets on the marketplace and the health reform law and checklists to get ready. 
  • Kaiser Family Foundation’s (KFF’s) State Health Insurance Marketplace Profiles –an interactive map detailing each state’s insurance marketplace.
  • KFF’s Subsidy Calculator – a subsidy calculator tool to help families estimate how much they could spend on health insurance and whether they qualify for financial assistance.
