Are you scrambling to get health insurance now that you're unemployed?
Experts say the number of uninsured people have risen during the pandemic and now the Biden administration has taken action.
Today marks the first day for signing up for the Affordable Care Act. Government insurance markets will be available until May 15th in most states.
Thanks to Biden who ordered that the program reopened, people who don't have coverage but recently developed a health problem will have an option for action.
Note: Any coverage purchased will start the first day of the following month.
If you need financial help the government will buy coverage in the marketplaces for you, depending on your income.
Those who make 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level are eligible for assistance with premium payments in the form of tax credits.
If you're not happy with your current coverage, this enrollment period is an opportunity to improve your situation.
