Obamacare/Affordable Health Care Act: How to buy health insurance in 4 easy steps

Buying insurance on the health care exchanges doesn’t have to be a mindbaffling experience. I want to demystify the process for you with simple step-by-step guidance.

Get an overview of the buying process

  1. See if you’re eligible for any subsidy.
  2. Go to your state’s health care exchange.
  3. Once you’re at the exchange, pick individual or business depending on which you are.
  4. Begin shopping by color. (Bronze, silver, etc.) The higher up the scale you shop, the higher the premium and the less out-of-pocket you will have.
