EnrollQC Enrollment Center Will Remain Open Through June 30
The EnrollQC enrollment center will assist individuals eligible for health marketplace enrollment through June 30.
Jennifer Busch, a health insurance navigator for Genesis Health System, said there are a number of qualifying events that would determine eligibility for health marketplace enrollment.
“A job loss, losing health coverage and a change in marital status are all possible qualifying events,’’ Busch said. “Now that we have momentum from the enrollment period, we want to remind people that it is possible to qualify and enroll in health marketplace benefits throughout the year.’’
Qualifying events for Marketplace eligibility include losing insurance, losing a job and job-based insurance coverage, losing benefits because of divorce, expiration of COBRA benefits, turning 27 years old and gaining citizenship.
Medicaid enrollment continues throughout the year for those whose incomes are below 138% of Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
The health insurance navigators can also assist anyone experiencing difficulties with their new insurance coverage.
