CAUTION MEDICARE CONSUMERS: If you have Medicare, you do not need to purchase health insurance through the Marketplace. Your Medicare coverage, whether received through a Medicare Advantage plan or through original Medicare, isn't changing because of the Affordable Care Act and the Marketplaces. You will still need to review your Medicare coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period, October 15-December 7th for your 2014 coverage. TN SHIP is available to help you compare plans available in your area.
Call 1-877-801-0044 for help. You should also consider signing up for important email messages from SHIP. It only takes a few easy steps to stay informed.
