By now, you may have heard about the changes that have arrived to the health care system, as well as some of discounts you could receive to make health insurance more affordable. But did you know you could get free health insurance for a year? That’s right! Starting today, Young Invincibles is launching its Healthy Young America App Sweepstakes, where one lucky person will win $1200 (about the average an uninsured young adult getting insurance through the exchange will pay). You can enter by downloading the Healthy Young America App, checking the app’s inbox (in the top-right corner for iPhones and the yellow icon for Android), and filling out the form. Make sure you read the contest rules for more details on how to enter.
The Healthy Young America App is a free and useful tool for young adults who are new to health care. The App has four main features:
1. Find a Doctor- Using Yelp and Center for Disease Control search engines, this feature finds local doctors and clinics. This feature is great if you’ve recently purchased insurance and are looking for health services.
2. Questions and Answers- A full set of frequently asked questions and glossary terms help to bring you up to speed on the ACA and health insurance in general. If you can’t find an answer to your question, you can submit one directly to our staff.
3. Discount Calculator- Using a mobile-friendly version of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s subsidy calculator, this feature estimates your monthly health insurance subsidies and premiums. This is a must-use feature if you’re uninsured and are curious about health care savings that could help you buy insurance.
4. Get Insurance- With direct links to the Health Insurance Marketplace’s call center, online portal and navigator-finder, this feature provides you with all the resources to get covered.
Here are three simple reasons why you can’t pass this up:
1. It’s free
2. It’s easy
All you have to do to enter the sweepstakes is download the app, check the app’s inbox and fill out the form in the message.
3. You could win $1,200!
Under the ACA, most uninsured young adults can find coverage for less than $100 per month or $1200 for the year.
No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win. Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received. Void where prohibited by law. Click here to view the Official Rules prior to entry and for more ways to enter.
