Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Marketplace will allow people to compare prices and shop for health insurance—online or by phone.  The annual enrollment for the Health Marketplace opens November 1, 2016 and continues through January 31, 2017.  Insurance coverage begins January 1, 2017.  In order to receive coverage on January 1, participants must enroll by December 15, 2016.

To buy a Marketplace plan outside the Open Enrollment Period, you must have a Qualifying Life Event, such as getting married, having a baby, moving to an area that offers different health plan options, or involuntarily losing access to other health coverage. Most Marketplace Special Enrollment Periods last 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event. Also, job-based plans must provide a special enrollment period of 30 days following certain life events that involve a change in family status (for example, marriage or birth of a child) or loss of other job-based health coverage.

Participating Provider

St. Elizabeth's Hospital Accepted Insurance Providers

St. Elizabeth’s Hospital participates in most major insurance plans. We do recommend that you or a family member confirm that both your physician and the hospital are listed as participating providers with your insurance plan. Contact your insurance company directly to confirm coverage. The phone number is usually listed on the insurance card. Many insurance companies, in fact, require you to notify them prior to your hospital stay. St. Elizabeth’s Hospital will also make every effort to notify your insurance company that you are a patient here and obtain any necessary authorizations.

View the below list of plans accepted by St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. If your insurance provider is not listed, please call to verify, as we continuously assess new plans. For information on how to access hospital services under your insurance plan, please call 618-234-2120.
