March 24, 2021, 9:50 am

President Biden announced that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is extending access to the Special Enrollment Period (SEP) until August 15 – giving consumers additional time to take advantage of new savings through the American Rescue Plan.  This action provides new and current enrollees an additional three months to re-evaluate their coverage needs with increased tax credits available to reduce premiums.  Consumers who want to access the SEP to enroll in coverage and see if they qualify for financial help to reduce the cost of monthly premiums, can visit or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.
