Do you have questions about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act? Need help enrolling in health coverage for the coming year? Want to avoid the tax penalties of going without health coverage?
At Direct, providing much needed protection for consumers is how we first got started. We began selling car insurance out of an old auto repair shop in 1991, providing insurance coverage for drivers and their vehicles from day one.
But we do more than insure cars, we also help take care of their drivers. This means helping our policyholders and their families by providing information about health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. That’s why we’ve partnered with a company called Next Health to help you find health insurance that not only fits your needs, but also meets government requirements.
Getting Help is Easy. Just fill out this simple form:
A Next Health representative will then contact you to help you obtain the coverage you need, understand the government subsidies you may qualify for, and get you enrolled. Although Direct does not offer the coverage you may qualify for, Next Health is able to place you with a health insurance company that offers this vital coverage.
This referral program* is only available between November 15, 2014 and February 15, 2015 in the following states: TN, TX, GA, FL, and SC.
