More Patients Can Enroll In Marketplace Insurance Plans Served by MetroHealth
Cleveland - More patients will have an opportunity to enroll in Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace Exchange plans.
President Biden signed a January 28 executive order to reopen the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace online enrollment site for a special period of three months to augment the prior six-week period that ended in December.
This means people will be allowed to sign up for insurance through the government exchange from February 15, 2021 to May 15, 2021.
The MetroHealth System is an in-network provider with these five Marketplace Exchange insurers:
- Ambetter/Buckeye Community Health Plan
- Anthem Pathway
- Medical Mutual
HealthCare.gov is the online federal insurance exchange for people who do not have access to affordable health benefits through a job. For the past few years, Americans who qualify for ACA health plans could sign up only during open enrollment periods unless they had a major change in their lives like the loss of a job. This special enrollment period starting February 15 will give patients, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, an extra three months to buy health care coverage.
