You may have received a letter that you're being dropped from your health insurer. Some providers have pulled out of the Healthcare Marketplace. But, three providers remain: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, HealthNet and Ambetter.
 
If you live in Arizona, at least one provider will be available on November 1st when enrollment begins for 2017. And make sure to check if you qualify for subsidies.
 
Experts say 30,000 Arizonans qualify but did not take advantage of the lowered insurance costs. Click here to find out more about the Healthcare Marketplace.
 
And the Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers says about 300,000 people who qualify for federally-funded AHCCCS, didn't apply. Click here to find out if you qualify for AHCCCS.
