The Health Insurance Marketplace Resource Guide

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law on March 23, 2010 was enacted to help the millions of uninsured and underinsured Americans obtain health coverage.

Enrollment for the Marketplace Begins October 1, 2013

Open Enrollment runs from Oct. 1, 2013 - Mar. 31, 2014

The new healthcare law requires that all Americans have health insurance beginning on January 1, 2014. The law provides information about the new health insurance options and gives consumers the tools they need to choose the insurance option that best suits their needs.

The Health Insurance Marketplace, a source of information about consumers' health insurance options as well as an enrollment portal for Pennsylvanians, will be available on October 1, 2013 at Healthcare.gov. Open enrollment begins October 1, 2013 and ends on March 31, 2014.

The Crozer-Keystone Health System's Health Insurance Marketplace Resource Guide contains the basic tools to help consumers make informed decisions about healthcare insurance and provide physicians with basic information for patients.

Crozer-Keystone Financial Counselors, Contacts, Hours

As the largest health system in Delaware County, we are taking steps to help members of our community understand the Health Insurance Marketplace. Some of these activities include:

We have met the criteria to be designated as a Certified Application Counselor (CAC) organization by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Our counselors have been individually trained by CMS and are designated as Certified Application Counselors. These Certified Application Counselors will be responsible for helping consumers - via phone call and on a walk-in basis at our hospitals - to learn about the basics of health coverage, identify and compare their coverage options and help them select health coverage that best fits their budget and specific needs.
