Obamacare—Good News for Families With Children

If you’re a family with children, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,’ is good news for you.

If you already have health care coverage, keep it. If you don’t have coverage, you can buy insurance in the marketplace. Starting on October 1, just twelve days from today, you can begin shopping for insurance on the Health Insurance Marketplace, and obtain coverage—at lower costs and with more choices than ever before

Health insurance policies take effect on January 1, 2014. Even if you already have health insurance coverage, you gain new protections, thanks to the law. 

Whether you’re uninsured, you’ve been denied coverage in the past, or you just want to explore new options, the Health Insurance Marketplace will give you more choice and control over your health coverage. The Marketplace will operate in all states, including here in New Mexico, so no matter where you live you’ll have access to coverage—with more choices, and lower costs—than ever before.

If you need coverage, you can use the Marketplace to obtain health care coverage. If you have coverage, you gain new protections.

The Marketplace and what’s changing in 2014

In the Marketplace, you can compare coverage options based on price, benefits, quality, and other features important to you. You can choose the combination of price and benefits that fits your budget and meets your needs.

Rights & Protections

The health care law offers new rights, consumer protections, and benefits like free preventive care.
