I lost my health insurance and need to find a new plan.
Losing your health insurance can be an overwhelming experience. But the good news is there’s probably a plan that will work for you. And with AmeriHealth New Jersey’s broad provider network, you probably won’t have to change your doctor. We have plenty of options to accommodate all combinations of health needs and budget. Here are some things to consider after losing your health insurance...
- If you need a plan for your whole family, AmeriHealth New Jersey has more than 30 options. Every one of them covers pediatric vision and dental services¹, as well as preventive services like immunizations and wellness visits.
- Be careful trying to save money by choosing a plan solely because of its lower premium. You could end up with high out-of-pocket costs if you get hurt or sick. Lower-premium plans may only be a reasonable option for people who use their benefits less.
- If you were laid off or otherwise lost your job, COBRA health insurance may be able to get you continued coverage through your group plan. Learn more from the United States Department of Labor.
- Losing your job-based insurance qualifies you to buy a plan through Get Covered New Jersey. This New Jersey Health Insurance Marketplace is where eligible residents can shop for and buy insurance online or by phone. Start looking and keep AmeriHealth New Jersey in mind at GetCovered.NJ.gov.
If you’re struggling to afford health insurance, you might be able to get help from the government. See if you qualify or learn more about Health Care Reform and how it affects you.
¹ You may opt out of our pediatric dental benefits if you wish to purchase them through another insurer.
