ACA Special Enrollment Period
With the COVID-19 health crisis continuing to wreak havoc across the nation, President Joe Biden has announced the creation of a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) so Americans without comprehensive health care coverage may shop for a plan that meets their needs during these difficult times. In the midst of this pandemic, access to comprehensive health care coverage has never been more important. Visit healthcare.gov today to take advantage of this SEP and find the right plan for you, now through August 15, 2021! New cost savings for many Americans are now available through the ACA Marketplace with the passage of the American Rescue Plan. Visit healthcare.gov/more-savings/ for more information.
About the ACA Marketplace:
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, over 20 million previously uninsured Americans finally had affordable, comprehensive health care coverage, including those with preexisting conditions. Each year, beginning in November, Americans have the opportunity to shop for a plan that meets the needs of themselves and their family by visiting HealthCare.gov and searching available plans. Those who have previously enrolled in coverage can renew their current plan or choose a new plan that better meets their health care needs.

Shopping for health care coverage can be intimidating. Do you simply shop for the lowest premium? Does the silver plan meet your needs? If the task of searching for the right plan for you seems overwhelming, you are not alone.
