coverageOasis has federally trained and certified and state-licensed health insurance Navigators available to help you over the phone or in-person with the Missouri Health Insurance Marketplace. The Marketplace can be an affordable alternative to COBRA and a “bridge to Medicare” if you lose your health insurance.

Open Enrollment for the Missouri Health Insurance Marketplace (Obamacare) is November 1 through December 15, 2019 for health insurance beginning January 1, 2020.

If you miss Open Enrollment, you may qualify to receive health insurance from the Missouri Marketplace through a special enrollment period if you lost your health insurance for any of the following:

  • Your or your spouse lost a job
  • You became a U.S. citizen
  • Your dependency status changed
  • You got married
  • Your individual health plan ended
  • You moved to another state

Oasis Navigators are available at two BJC hospital locations. Call the office to talk with a Navigator or to schedule a counseling session. Our health insurance Navigators are available to help you enroll in a health plan, answer questions or assist with an appeal. This assistance is free and confidential. Oasis Navigators do not sell or broker for any insurance company.
