OFF-Exchange Marketplace: Not eligible for Federal Tax Credit in 2020; you might qualify now!

  • Your income may now quality for Federal Assistance to decrease your Health Insurance Premiums during the Special Election Period (SEP) until August 15, 2021.

ON-Exchange Marketplace: Excellent time to re-verify your eligibility; you might be entitled to more Federal assistance.
