Now Is the Time to Sign Up for Health Insurance and We Can Help

Let's make this year’s open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) a little easier. Check it out.

Chronic Care Issues

HealthyWomen has teamed up with HealthSherpa, a private health insurance marketplace based in San Francisco, to make this year’s open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) a little easier.

HealthSherpa can help you shop and compare plans, determine whether you qualify for savings, and enroll you in coverage. To get started, just click on the sign-up box below.

Today, under the ACA, more than 55 million women, ages 19 to 64, have insurance plans that cover 26 health services to prevent illnesses and disease, detect health problems early, and keep women and newborns healthy—all at no cost to the patient. Click here to learn more about the ACA, what health services are required, and our #KeeptheCare campaign to keep it going strong.

Meanwhile, here are a few things to note before you enroll:

Dates and deadlines

This year, the annual open enrollment period falls between November 1 to December 15. It’s also important to know, if you miss Open enrollment, you may have to wait until the following year to enroll in health coverage.

Preventive care

Every plan comes with free preventive care. A few of these services include: well-woman visits, breast cancer screenings, depression screenings, immunization vaccines, STI screenings, plus more.

Pre-existing conditions

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, you can not be denied coverage or charged more due to a pre-existing condition. This means if you’re pregnant or living with cancer, diabetes, or any other health condition, you will not be discriminated against.


Last year, eight out of 10 people qualified for savings on their monthly payment—and one in three who enrolled through HealthSherpa found a plan for $25 or less per month.
