What is GoEnrollWV?
GoEnrollWV.org is a website sponsored by WV FREE and other non-profit organizations in West Virginia. GoEnrollWV.org helps West Virginians learn more about the new health insurance options available through the Affordable Care Act and connects them to certified people in their community who can walk them through enrolling in a plan.
The Basics on Health Care
Do you have health insurance, in case you get sick or have an accident? Beginning on October 1, 2013 new, affordable health insurance options became available for uninsured West Virginia residents through the new health insurance Marketplace. If you enroll in a plan by December 23rd your health care coverage will begin January 1, 2014. Don’t worry – it’s not too late to enroll! March 31, 2014 is the last date you are able to enroll in a plan for 2014. After this date, you may be charged a fee for not having coverage.
Do I Qualify?
You can also visit Health Sherpa, type in your zip code, and find prices and names of insurance plans that are available for you in West Virginia. If you have questions about your eligibility, be sure to contact an “in person assister” or “navigator” for help. They can help walk you through the process of finding the right health care plan for you.
Compare Plans & Enroll Online
Visit the official Health Insurance Marketplace to learn more about your options or enroll directly online.
The application process is a “no wrong door” approach. With one application, the online portal determines what plan an individual or family is eligible for, based on their income and other factors. There are four kinds of coverage. • Medicaid covers everyone who lives in West Virginia, is a US citizen, is under age 65, and earns less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL), $26,951 a year for a single mom with two kids or $15,856 for a single adult. • The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will continue to be available for income-eligible children, but current enrollees who are in families with income below 138% of FPL will be transferred to Medicaid. • Private health insurance plans will compete to sell “qualified health plans.” There are significant subsidies for an individual who purchases a qualified health plan (QHP). These subsidies are on a sliding scale for those earning between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level in order to make their premiums more affordable. And there are reductions in deductibles and co-payments for individuals earning less than 250 percent of the federal poverty level. Families that earn too much to qualify for subsidies may enroll in a plan, but will be required to pay the entire monthly premium. • The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace enables businesses with fewer than 50 employees to purchase qualified health plans in the SHOP Marketplace.
Do you have more questions about how the Marketplace will work or what you need to do to get ready to enroll? HealthCare.gov can help point you in the right direction.

The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is a centerpiece of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The new law shifts the emphasis from a health system that responds primarily to illness and injury to one that also focuses on keeping people healthy. Women in particular will benefit from the preventive services that health plans are required to cover under the ACA with no cost-sharing. These include evidence based screenings, counseling, and procedures that over the course of a lifetime may have a profound impact on the health of individuals and the nation as a whole. To learn more about how health care reform will affect you, check out this easy to read booklet produced by West Virginians for Affordable Health Care: The Affordable Care Act: What Health Reform Means for Women and Families. To get started on finding a health care provider for your needs you should take a look at your plan benefits to see if there are certain providers that are in your “network.” These “in-network” providers include all kinds of specialists and general care physicians that can offer your basic preventive care needs. Among many other options, one avenue to get care is through your local community health center. Visit the WV Primary Care Association’s map of community health centers to see where your community health center is located. You can find other information about women’s health and how to stay healthy on www.womenshealth.gov.
