Health Coverage Matters - GET IT NOW!

Confused about health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act? Come meet with an authorized agent who can help you get the health coverage you need. 

If you are without health insurance and you don’t qualify for Medicaid, authorized agents are in the Health and Human Services lobby and ready to help you find a plan that will work for you. The good news is that almost 70% of NC residents will qualify for premium subsidies that could reduce their payment to as low as $19 a month.

You may qualify for a premium subsidy to help you pay if your household income is between the following annual income brackets…

Household Size 100% of Federal Poverty Level (Annually) 400% of Federal Poverty Level (Annually)
1 $11,490 $45,960
2 $15,510 $62,040
3 $19,530 $78,120
4 $23,550 $94,200
5 $27,570 $110,280
