How to Apply for Health Insurance coverage through the Marketplace?
Consumers can submit an application in the following ways:
1. Use the website of a Qualified Health Provider issuer or web-broker who is approved to offer the Classic Direct Enrollment Pathway or the Enhanced Direct Enrollment Pathway.
Lone Star Insurance Benefits is an authorized web-broker, meaning we can assist with your health insurance application through the exchange. We are able to do this because we use Quotit.com, a web broker-assisted software.
2. Use HealthCare.gov to apply directly online.
3. Contact the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to enroll by phone (available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except federal holidays).
4. Fill out and mail in a paper application.
While there are many ways to apply for coverage with the Federal Marketplace the recommended approach is an online application either through an authorized web-broker, like Lone Star Insurance Benefits or directly through Healthcare.gov. As a web-broker we can help with the process, help explain subsidies, benefits, and eligibility requirements. There is no cost for our service, so why not use Lone Star Insurance Benefits?
