The Arkansas Health Connector is a Partnership Marketplace jointly administered by the State and the federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The Arkansas Health Connector is essentially a marketplace for individuals to shop for health insurance if they do not already have insurance coverage from another source. If individuals have insurance from another source such as employment, retirement benefits, or spousal benefits, they do not need to obtain it from the Marketplace.
Providers must contract with each of the Qualified Health Plans offered in the marketplace individually to participate fully in the Arkansas Health Connector.
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below the list of insurers participating in the Arkansas Health Connector, and information about contacting them.
