The Affordable Care Act requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance beginning January 1, 2014. If an individual did not get health insurance by March 31, 2014, there will be a new Open Enrollment period from November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. You can shop for plans by phone, through a broker, at on-site enrollment locations, or at the online Health Insurance Marketplace.
Broadlawns is a member of the University of Iowa Health Alliance made up of more than 50 hospitals and more than 160 physician clinics. That means you have access to a network of providers all across Iowa, eastern Nebraska and the Quad Cities (Illinois).
As a member, our patients can be included in health care coverage offered on the Iowa Health Insurance Exchange.
