Today, President Biden took executive action to reverse several policies that have undermined the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid, and have made it harder to enroll in coverage. The President also announced a new, three-month Special Enrollment Period, allowing anyone to sign up for health coverage. Groups like YI and advocates like you have been pushing for this kind of Special Enrollment Period since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, so this is a big win.
Here is what you need to know:
- Sign up at Govanytime between February 15th and May 15th
- You do NOT need to prove a loss of coverage, if you’re uninsured and want to sign up for a plan, you should
- Coverage is more affordable than you think. In fact, a recent study found that 4 million Americans could qualify for a $0 plan – and a disproportionate amount of them are young people
- Need help enrolling in a plan? Help is still available! Find a Navigator or assister near you with our Connector tool.
