There’s a new Health Insurance Marketplace Special Enrollment Period for Low-Income Consumers

The Marketplace has just put into place a new Health Insurance Special Enrollment
Period (SEP) for low-income consumers who are at or below 150% of the Federal
Poverty Level (FPL).

The Federal Poverty Level is approximately $19,000 for an individual, $26,000 for
a family of two, $32,000 for a family of three, and $39,000 for a family of four. The
Federal Poverty Level for income at or below 150% varies by state and household

Using this new SEP, if you fit this eligibility you may enroll in a Marketplace
plan. It’s possible for those with existing policies to possibly change their
plan as well, but if you do change your plan mid-year then your annual
deductible and out of pocket limit will reset.

To be eligible for this SEP you must meet both of these criteria:
*Be eligible for an APTC (advanced premium tax credit aka subsidy)
*Have an estimated annual household income at or below 150% FPL.
Additionally, you cannot be eligible for Medicaid or offered affordable employer-
sponsored coverage to qualify for this SEP.

Contact Bush and Associates today to see if you qualify for this new SEP and/or
a different one to get a Health Insurance Plan.
