ACA-Compliant Health Insurance

Also known as “Obamacare plans”, this type of major medical insurance meets the ACA’s minimum essential coverage requirements. Individuals can enroll for 2022 plans during this year’s extended Open Enrollment Period of November 1, 2021 – January 15, 2022. (Note: Plans and rates for next year will not be available to view until November 1.)

If you have experienced a Qualifying Life Event (QLE) you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period that will allow you to enroll outside of the Open Enrollment Period. Watch our QLE webinar replay to learn more.

Non-ACA Health Insurance

Also known as “short-term health insurance”, non-ACA plans can be an affordable alternative for individuals who are in good health and don’t need coverage for maternity, mental health, substance abuse, or a preexisting condition. There is no designated enrollment period for these plans — you can apply at any time.

(Note: Non-ACA/short-term health insurance is medically underwritten and does not cover preexisting conditions. The coverage does not meet ACA minimum essential requirements. Availability varies by state.)
