Apply for Affordable Health Care by August 15
In an effort to expand access to affordable health care, the federal government has established a special enrollment period for coverage through the Affordable Care Act, now through Aug. 15.
Those seeking health insurance coverage, or looking to change their plans, may be able to achieve significant savings and lower costs on coverage as a result of new funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
“Health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act allows many people in our community access to critical health care services,” says Charles Prosper, chief executive, PeaceHealth Northwest. “Now is the time to act if you think you may be eligible or are already enrolled and interested in changing plans,” Prosper continued.
Go to HealthCare.gov to learn more about the healthcare plans offered or determine if you qualify for Medicaid or CHIP.
