Healthcare Plans

Our healthcare discount plans are available to members only and are handled for us by third-party administrators. The administrators are very efficient, and new members are generally enrolled quickly. Please contact the third-party administrators for details of coverage provided or discounts offered. The EFA office does not have this information.

ACA Insurance Update

Basic general information, including on a tax credit/subsidy to help you afford health insurance, penalties for not having it, and exemptions from the requirement to have it, is in the Quick Guide to the Health Insurance Marketplace. Important dates to be aware of are at the Dates and Deadlines page. The HealthCare.gov Blog can help you keep up with the latest information. Issues relevant to freelancers are dealt with on the page about Health coverage if you’re self-employed.

Most people in most US states can get coverage through the national marketplace (healthcare.gov). Some states have their own exchanges:
