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:
· 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.
