TO QUALIFY FOR THE ORANGE CARD, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE WEBSITE RESULTS (FROM ACA) SAYING YOU AND NOT ELIGIBLE FOR A HEALTH CARE PLAN BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR THE ORANGE CARD.
If you are eligible, the website will show you plans covering a wide range of prices for you to pick from. The plans will list what they cover and how much you will have to pay per month and at the doctors. These plans can add up over time so please be careful when picking a plan.
If you go to the doctors a lot, you may want to look at a plan where you more per month but less per visit. Keep in mind that the type of work you do can impact your health and may lead to you using the doctors more, i.e. a warehouse job where you do a lot of physical labor.

If a client is not able to obtain insurance through their employment or do not qualify through the ACA then the client may be able to be referred to Health Care Access here in Forsyth COunty. This is a program that will allow clients to access healthcare services through low cost co-pays. This referal needs to come from a World Relief staff member. So if you feel as though your partnered family may need this encourage them to come talk to a staff member.
They may also qualify for patient assistance through Wake Forest Baptist. You may contact a Financial Assistance Counselor at 336-716-0681.
