Be careful when considering health insurance plans offered outside of the health insurance marketplace!

If you’re considering an outside plan but can answer YES any of the questions to the right, then the plan is not a comprehensive plan protected by the ACA and you may be stuck with large medical bills.  To be sure you get a quality health insurance plan go to 
www.healthcare.gov or make an appointment to meet with one of our enrollment counselors.
