You May Still Be Able to Enroll in the Affordable Care Act

Affordable Care Act (ACA) open enrollment ended on January 31st. You and/or your family can still enroll in an ACA insurance plan through the health insurance marketplace if you have a life event that qualifies you for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

Make an appointment to meet with a Richland Library Navigator today!

A Special Enrollment Period is a 60-day window when a person can enroll in health insurance outside of open enrollment because they meet certain criteria or have experienced one of the following:

· Marriage/Divorce

· Having a baby

· Adopting a child or placing a child for adoption or foster care

· Losing other health coverage (including student health insurance coverage and employer based coverage)

· Moving to a new residence/new state

· Gaining citizenship or lawful presence in the U.S.

· Gaining or continuing status as a member of an Indian tribe or an Alaska Native shareholder.

· Leaving incarceration

· For people already enrolled in Marketplace coverage: Having a change in income or household status that affects eligibility for premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions

· Survivor of domestic violence

· Enrollment or plan error

Want to see if you qualify for a SEP, Richland Library Navigators can help. Make an appointment to discuss your options today.
