Affordable Care Act (ACA) Outreach and Enrollment Assistance
Are you having trouble finding health insurance that fits your needs and your budget? Look no further than the Health Insurance Marketplace. All plans in the Marketplace cover essential health benefits, pre-existing conditions, and more.
Since 2013, Tandem Health, as a Certified Application Counselor (CHC) Organization, has been dedicated to helping individuals apply for affordable health coverage with the Health Insurance Marketplace through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?
The Marketplace, established under the ACA, allows consumers to apply for, compare, and enroll in private health insurance plans. While consumers can still purchase insurance plans outside of The Marketplace, The Marketplace is the only program where consumers can see if they qualify for tax credits (to help pay monthly premiums) or cost-sharing reductions (to lower out-of-pocket costs, such as co-pays and deductibles).
When can I apply for coverage?
Open Enrollment for the Marketplace opens November 1, 2021. If you want your health coverage to start January 1, 2022, you must enroll in a plan by December 15, 2021. Enrolling by this date will ensure you do not have a break in coverage. You can change your plan selection any time during Open Enrollment, which ends December 15, 2021.
How will I know if I am eligible?
If you need assistance with the application process, you can contact our Certified Application Counselors at 803.774.4632 or 803.774.4463.
