Need help finding health insurance?

Via Christi CARE (Coverage Assistance Resources Enrollment) provides certified insurance marketplace navigators, funded with a Department of Health and Human Services grant, to assist consumers in selecting the insurance plan that is right for them.

The navigators conduct enrollment seminars and meet with consumers individually to discuss their options and health care needs.

“We find that many consumers have a lack of understanding of what the Affordable Care Act means and what the Marketplace is offering, “ says Maggie Ward, nurse navigator. “Our biggest role is providing the education.”

The nurse navigators offer one-on-one assistance with enrollment paperwork, online enrollment, and will even sit in on phone calls with consumers wishing to enroll in the Marketplace over the phone. 

To make an appointment with a nurse navigator, call 316-689-5700.

What to bring to your appointment

The Marketplace is a new way to access health coverage offered by private insurance companies. In the Marketplace, plans are broken down into four categories based on cost and comprehensiveness: bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

In many cases, the cost of a plan will depend upon eligibility requirements. Before your appointment, gather the following documents so your navigator can have all the information needed to give you the most accurate quotes:

  • Social Security numbers
  • Birth dates
  • Pay stubs, W-2 forms or “Wage and Tax Statements”
  • Policy numbers for any current health insurance
  • Information about any health insurance you or your family could get from your jobs

Once you’ve found the choice right for you, your navigator will help you enroll in your new plan. With this coverage in place, you’ll have greater access to preventive screenings for cancer and other illnesses.

Accidents or illnesses can result in massive medical bills. Enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you and your family are covered in an unpredictable situation.
