Health Benefits Enrollment

Greater Family Health wants you to live greater, and that means helping you apply for health benefits. We have a team of Health Benefits Specialists who are ready to help you apply for health benefits coverage year-round. They can help you determine which type of plan, in the Marketplace (Affordable Care Act/ObamaCare) or through Medicaid, you may qualify for.

If you are a Medicaid patient, our Health Benefit Specialists can help you enroll in your choice of Managed Care Organization, but they cannot tell you which plan to choose.

Our Health Benefits Specialist can meet with patients by appointment, please call to schedule your appointment today.

Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010. The ACA increases access to health insurance coverage and services for all Americans. This federal law focuses on consumer choices and protections. It makes it easier and more affordable for individuals and families to enroll in health insurance.

Health Insurance Marketplace

The Marketplace is a website designed to help you apply for coverage, compare insurance options, and enroll in health coverage that is best for you and your family. Those who do not qualify for Medicare, Medicaid, or employer-sponsored insurance, may be eligible for financial assistance to reduce the cost of monthly premiums and medical expenses.

Health Benefits for Immigrant Seniors

Non-citizens age 65 and over who do not meet immigration status for Medicaid may be eligible for the Health Benefits for Immigrant Seniors program, which is a state funded program. 

Our Health Benefit Specialists can help you determine if you qualify and help you apply.

Enrollment Periods

Health Benefit Specialists can help you apply for coverage under the Affordable Care Act during special enrollment periods.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has opened a new “Special Enrollment Period” on the Health Insurance Marketplace from February 15, 2021, through August 15, 2021. This allows consumers who did not sign up for insurance during the 2021 Open Enrollment period to sign up and enroll. Those who are currently enrolled would have the opportunity to change their plan if they desire to.

Outside of Open Enrollment, Individuals who experience a life-changing event may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period or may be required to make an update to their coverage. Medicaid eligible individuals may enroll at any time.

Qualifying life changing events may include:
