We know that unemployment is rising in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic impacts. This is why HCA Healthcare has created a dedicated hotline for individuals that may have recently lost their jobs (laid off or furloughed). The hotline provides personalized guidance to health coverage options, and can do the following:
• Evaluate eligibility for COBRA, Healthcare Marketplace/Exchange Plans, and/or Medicaid
and potential resources that may offset the cost of insurance premiums
• Understand, complete and submit eligibility applications on the individual’s behalf (if desired)
• Follow up with county or state to complete eligibility process (if needed)
This is a free service and is intended to help connect individuals that may be faced with health insurance coverage challenges due to unemployment. This hotline is staffed by patient benefit advisors that can help individuals with their specific situations and to find their best coverage options. This service is offered Monday–Friday from 8-6pm.
