How to get a subsidy for your health insurance plan

Looking for health insurance coverage and think you might qualify for a subsidy?

You can get a subsidized health plan through your Federal or State Marketplace -- one of the great benefits of the ACA. And in most cases, we have people available to help walk you through the process!

Just search for a plan on the National Benefits Platform to see if we can help.

Freelancers Union can help you enroll in a subsidy-eligible health plan on the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace in most states. Begin by searching in your area and click below the “View Plans” link (where it says “If you are eligible for a subsidy, click here”) or just call us at** 800-856-9981**.

Unfortunately, Freelancers Union can’t help walk you through the process, but read our helpful guide here to understand how to do it.

Of course, if you don’t qualify for a subsidy, we can also help you find plans on the National Benefits Platform.
