Charo Boyd: Deadline nearing for healthcare enrollment
Under the law, a new "Patient's Bill of Rights" gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health. Some of the benefits of this coverage include:
Open enrollment began in November and ends Jan. 31. Compare healthcare plans so that you can find the best one for you, and sign up before the enrollment period ends. You can learn more about the insurance marketplace and how to apply for benefits at www.healthcare.gov.
If you are 65 or older, you are entitled to Medicare. Certain people younger than age 65 can qualify for Medicare, including those who have disabilities and those who have permanent kidney failure. The program helps with the cost of healthcare, but it does not cover all medical expenses or the cost of most long-term care.
You can access everything you need for Medicare, including online applications and publications, at www.socialsecurity.gov/medicare.
Social Security and affordable healthcare go hand-in-hand. The Affordable Care Act and Medicare help ensure that you and your family are covered.[[In-content Ad]]
