Johnson Health Center offers FREE health insurance counseling and enrollment to the public. You do not have to be a patient of the health center to utilize this service. Certified Application Counselors are trained professionals to help you determine what health insurance options are available to you such as Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. We have a Certified Application Counselor at each of our locations.
For more information about Virginia’s Medicaid program, you can visit the Cover Virginia website or call one of our Certified Application Counselors who can help you apply. Beginning January 1, 2019, more adults living in Virginia will be eligible for Medicaid. So, if you applied for Medicaid in the past and were denied, you may soon be eligible. Below is a chart with Income Eligibility Guidelines.
For more information about the Affordable Care Act, you can visit https://www.healthcare.gov/. The next open enrollment for health insurance is November 1, 2019-December 15, 2019. You may still qualify for a special enrollment outside of those dates. Some qualifying events for a special enrollment period are: having a baby, moving, losing health coverage and getting married. Johnson Health Center can help you decide if you have a qualifying life event.
