We are happy to announce that our affiliate website – MyGeorgiahealthplan.com is up and running! MyGeorgiahealthplan.com is your one stop spot for peach state residents to apply for Georgia health plan subsidies and get enrolled in a 2015 marketplace health insurance plan. Our unique enrollment system – we like to call it our “private exchange” connects directly to healthcare.gov to allow you to complete your enrollment without having to login to the marketplace at healthcare.gov! If you applied through healthcare.gov during the last open enrollment period, you probably know that enrolling thru healthcare.gov can be a daunting task. The application is very lengthy, and the website is often buggy or nonresponsive. During the 2014 open enrollment, it was not uncommon for a family’s enrollment to take over an hour on the marketplace! Our new enrollment software system on MyGeorgiahealthplan will allow you to #getenrolled in 10 minutes or less! How is that for fast? We are very excited to offer residents of Georgia such a unique enrollment platform for 2015. Unlike some other “private exchanges”, our enrollment portal will allow you to view and compare ALL healthplans available on the marketplace in your county!
According to a recent article, more than 800,000 Georgians will be eligible for new government subsidies. That is nearly 1 million people eligible for a tax credit to help pay for their Georgia health plan!
A report from consumer advocacy group Families USA, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, also known to many as “Obamacare”, found that most Georgians eligible for credits are in working families and have incomes between two and four times the federal poverty level, or about $47,100 to $94,200 for a family of four.
Georgia, located in the southern region of the United States, is home to over 9.6 million people, making it the ninth most populous state in the United States of America and the third most populous state in the Southern US, after Texas and Florida. With a size of nearly 58,000 square miles, Georgia is the 30th largest state. Much of Georgia is rural, including 37 of the state’s 159 counties that are part of the Appalachian region. However, a majority of the state’s population (87%) lives in metropolitan areas. Georgia’s three most populous counties (Fulton, Gwinett, and Cobb) account for over one-quarter (26%) of the state population.
