If you need health insurance and want to apply for coverage through the Affordable Care Act, go to healthcare.gov, the main website for the federal program.

The website offers four ways to apply for coverage through the program - online via the website, by phone, by paper or by seeking help locally. You can find information on the plans available for individuals, families and small businesses. You can also learn about the basics of health insurance, the health insurance marketplace, getting lower costs on coverage, and other health insurance programs available.

To apply for public assistance services such as Food Stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Medicaid or subsidized child care, visit compass.ga.gov.
