HEALTH INSURANCE ENROLLMENT: Offers individuals and small business owners the opportunity to shop, compare and enroll in a range of affordable health insurance choices. Offers a one stop shop for individuals to be assessed for federal tax credits and subsidies to help cover insurance costs; see if family members qualify for public health programs; also links callers to additional resources. By law, under the Affordable Care Act, most people over age 18 must have health insurance beginning in 2015 or pay a fine. Enrollment begins Nov 1, 2018 and ends Dec 15, 2018.
Major Life Event: If someone mentions having had a life event (lost a job, had a baby, etc.) in the last month and needs to apply for insurance or update their application to reflect this change.
Medicare: Medicare recipients already have insurance and are not eligible to participate in the marketplace.
