In response to the COVID-19 national emergency, President Biden has signed into law the American Rescue Act of 2021  making health insurance coverage significantly more affordable for millions of people. This includes increasing the number of people eligible for subsidies and offering zero-dollar premiums for people with lower incomes. Starting April 1, more Americans will be able to qualify for a lower monthly premium through Affordable Care Act (ACA) health plans. 

Can I benefit from The American Rescue Act?

Whether you have private health insurance, lost coverage due to job loss, or are unable to afford a plan, the American Rescue Act may benefit you. The new law also allows people who previously made too much for subsidies to now qualify for premium subsidies.

What is the deadline to enroll?

August 15, 2021 is the new extended deadline to submit your application for the special enrollment period. If you recently lost your coverage, were unable to purchase a plan during Open Enrollment, or would like to switch health plans for any reason, now is the time to shop and enroll.
