Residents who purchase health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace are limited to just one plan if they want to receive care at a Floyd location or from a Floyd provider in 2020.
Only Alliant SoloCare has elected to have Floyd Medical Center, Polk Medical Center, Floyd Primary Care, Floyd Urgent Care and Willowbrooke at Floyd in their network for the coming year.
This is especially important for women who plan to give birth in 2020 and who wish to have their baby at Floyd Medical Center.
Expectant parents or parents who plan to have a baby in the coming year will need to choose an Alliant SoloCare health plan on the ACA Marketplace, also known as the Exchange, to ensure their hospital obstetrical services are covered.
If there is any chance that you will need emergency care, surgery, urgent care or visit a Floyd Primary Care physician in the coming year, you should also carefully consider your ACA Marketplace insurance selection.
The deadline to sign up for health insurance in the ACA Marketplace is Dec. 15. Individuals who need to purchase insurance or change a previous decision in the Health Care Marketplace should call 1-800-318-2596 or visit www.healthcare.gov. Consumers should also note that a change in network coverage is not considered a qualifying life event that merits changing plans after January 1.
