The benefits of health insurance through the Marketplace
No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care – like a doctor visit, a prescription drug, a lab test, physical therapy, or counseling – at some point. These services can be expensive.
And if something happens that requires surgery or emergency medical care, it’s really important to have coverage. Fixing a broken leg can cost up to $7,500, and the average cost of a 3-day hospital stay is around $30,000.
The Health Insurance Marketplace® offers a variety of high-quality health coverage choices for routine and non-routine medical services that can work for your family and budget.

5 questions to ask about your new doctor
Choosing a doctor is one of the most important decisions you'll make about your health care. Finding the right one can take a little work, but is well worth it. If you’ve already had your first visit with a primary care doctor under your new plan, ask yourself these 5 questions to make sure your doctor is the right one for you:
- Did you feel the doctor cared about your health and about you as a person?
- Did the doctor listen to you and address your needs?
- Did the doctor use words you could understand and talk to you in a way that made you feel comfortable?
- Was he or she respectful of your opinions, culture, and beliefs?
- Did you feel like you could ask questions at the appointment or call the doctor later with questions?
