You should definitely check out your options and see if you could save even more on your out-of-pocket costs by choosing a silver plan.

About US


Get America Covered helps people get covered and stay covered. We’re here to help people looking to enroll in health coverage and those who are helping other people sign-up.

Open Enrollment was half as long this year and there was less public education about enrollment information and key deadlines than during previous open enrollments. This makes it that much harder for people to find the facts and information they need in order to sign up for health coverage.

We’re stepping in to help get the word out, and we hope you’ll join us. We ran outreach and public education for over the last three years. Now, we’re taking everything we learned about how to reach people with the information they need and get to work, helping more people enroll.
