The additional – Wonderful News!
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021 makes major improvements in access and to affordability of health coverage.
- President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) into law on March 11, 2021. ARP makes major improvements in access to and affordability of health coverage through the Marketplace by increasing eligibility for financial assistance to help pay for Marketplace coverage.
- The new law will lower premiums for most people who currently have a Marketplace health plan and expand access to financial assistance for more consumers.
- Under the new law, many people who buy their own health insurance directly through the Marketplace will become eligible to receive increased tax credits to reduce their premiums. Starting April 1, 2021, consumers enrolling in Marketplace coverage through HealthCare.gov will be able to take advantage of these increased savings and lower costs.
Getting enrolled into coverage is easy, when contacting beWellnm! New Mexicans can enroll in the Marketplace by visiting beWellnm.com and scheduling a free-virtual appointment with a certified enrollment counselor, navigator, agent, broker, or "assister" to find the right plan to enroll for 2021 coverage for yourself and your family. If you are a small business owner and don't offer coverage today, your employees can also apply for coverage.
