#1 The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is still in effect—and will be unless there's a change in the law.

That means that birth control—including IUDs and the implant—is still covered without a copay. Minnesotans who enroll during the current open enrollment period will have coverage throughout 2019, guaranteed, as long as they pay their monthly premiums on time.

#2 Open enrollment runs from November 1, 2018 through January 13, 2019.

Starting November 1, you can sign up for affordable health insurance. The last day to sign up is January 13, 2019—and Planned Parenthood can even help. That's right, Minnesota's open enrollment period is even longer than the national enrollment period, so what are you waiting for?

If you qualify for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, you can enroll at any time. If you experience certain life events, you may also qualify for a special enrollment period.

#3 Planned Parenthood has MNsure certified Navigators to help you enroll—for FREE!

Planned Parenthood Navigators can help you create a MNsure account, submit your application, and even help you enroll in a program or plan when you’re ready.

#4 You may qualify for a tax subsidy to help lower your premium.

Most uninsured Americans will get help paying for an insurance plan, and millions of individuals will now qualify for low-cost or free coverage. Financial help is available for individuals making less than $33,165 per year. Most families of four making less than $67,650 will get financial help.

If you qualify for the no-cost birth control program (Minnesota Family Planning Program or MFPP), you may qualify for more comprehensive insurance covering more than just birth control. Navigators can help you determine if you are eligible.

#5 Whether or not you have health insurance, you can always come to Planned Parenthood for the care you need.

Planned Parenthood believes everyone should have access to our services regardless of their ability to pay. Planned Parenthood’s doors are open to everyone—whether you have insurance or not. You can come to us for the expert, quality care you need, when you need it—with or without insurance. For more than 100 years, Planned Parenthood has been providing expert reproductive and sexual health care. That’s not changing.
