Navigating the Affordable Care Act

Open enrollment ended 2/15/17. You may be eligible for Special Enrollment Opportunities if you experienced certain life changes after this date. If you are eligible for a Special Enrollment opportunity you will have 60 days to choose a plan.

  • Have you moved?
  • Did you get married?
  • Did your insurance end? Were you on COBRA? You have 60 days to pick another plan.
  • Were you uninsured in 2014 and have to pay a tax penalty? This Special Enrollment Period ended April 30, 2015
  • Do you know that ADAP is not insurance? If you are only on ADAP you do not have comprehensive insurance and you could have a penalty next year.

Anyone eligible for Medicaid can enroll throughout the year. New York is a Medicaid Expansion state so more people are eligible. If the annual income for a single person is less than $16,105 then Medicaid is an excellent option.

The next Open Enrollment will start on November 1, 2015 for coverage on January 1, 2016. Open Enrollment will end January 31, 2016.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has created a number of changes that can be very challenging to navigate. Luckily, GMHC is an official ACA Navigator, and we are here to help.
