WHY SHOULD YOU USE THE MARKETPLACE?
Save on costly medical services and avoid tax penalties by enrolling in health insurance.
Did you know the average cost of a three-day hospital stay is $30,000? Or that a broken leg can cost up to $7,500? Health coverage can help protect you from unexpected high costs. Not having health insurance could also cost you extra in taxes—penalties in 2015 for uninsured people are either 2 percent of yearly household income or $325 per individual, whichever is greater. Those penalties will increase every year. You can enroll through the new Health Insurance Marketplace starting Nov. 1, 2015,
