• HEALTH INSURANCE BASICS: The League of Women Voters of Louisiana has posted a “Health Insurance Basics” report on its website, www.lwvofla.org. It briefly discusses the benefits of health insurance coverage; the dates for Marketplace enrollment, renewal or change of an existing plan; information to have on hand; and steps to enroll in, renew or change an insurance plan. The report also includes a table showing for each size household the range of incomes that may make individuals eligible to receive help to pay for health insurance in the Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act. The ACA extends health insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. A number of organizations provide free assistance with the Health Insurance Marketplace. “Health Insurance Basics” provides telephone and email contact information for these organizations.
