Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare", health insurance is available and more affordable for everyone, especially to those with the lowest incomes since it helps subsidize costs. Some of the ways you can obtain health insurance coverage is through the Iowa exchange, through an employer's plan, public programs like Medicaid and CHIP, directly from a private insurance provider, or through health insurance marketplaces like GoHealth. We partner with over 300+ private insurers to help Iowa residents compare plans and benefits, and get better health insurance at the lowest cost.

Living in Iowa gives you access to many health coverage options. Whether you work for yourself or you work for a company without health insurance, you can find the best Iowa health insurance option for your needs and budget.

Going without health coverage isn’t a risk you should take. If you end up in the hospital without coverage, you could end up in medical debt or with other issues. With so many health insurance options in Iowa, it’s an unnecessary risk to go without coverage.
