Starting July 1, the American Rescue Plan Act makes individuals who receive unemployment compensation beginning in 2021 eligible for cost-sharing subsidies through the federally facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today encouraged eligible individuals to enroll in Marketplace coverage or update their application and enrollment to maximize their savings during the special enrollment period, which ends Aug. 15.

For resources to help promote the SEP, see the Get Covered 2021 digital toolkit. AHA is a member of the Get Covered 2021 coalition, which works to prevent COVID-19 transmission and expand coverage.
