NASW Releases New Practice Alert on Opening of the Affordable Care Act Insurance Enrollment Period
NASW has issued a new social work Practice Alert: the “Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment November 1 to January 15.”
“For coverage to begin on January 1, enrollment must be completed by midnight on December 15. NASW is a Champion for Coverage and recognizes the importance of social workers who help individuals and families connect to health insurance coverage and health care services,” notes the alert.
“Health insurance coverage is critical to keeping up with preventive care, addressing physical and mental health conditions, and being protected from unexpected medical costs.
“During this time of year, individuals and families who do not have health insurance through their employer, Medicare, Medicaid, or other plan, can go to www.healthcare.gov or CuidadodeSalud.gov to find coverage options on the health insurance marketplace that was established through the Affordable Care Act. All plans available on the marketplace provide coverage for the Essential Health Benefits.” Learn more buff.ly/3O8gMKY
