Have you recently lost Medicaid coverage? If you believe you are still eligible, follow up with your Medicaid program and return your renewal form as soon as possible if you haven’t already. If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, you may be eligible for coverage with low premiums through the Health Care Marketplace. This coverage is affordable; 4 out of 5 enrollees can find plans that cost less than $10 a month. For more information about recent changes in Medicaid coverage, please visit www.lung.org/healthcare.
Open enrollment through Healthcare.gov runs from November 1 to January 15 in most states. If you or your child are eligible for CHIP or Medicaid, or if you are getting married, having a baby, losing other insurance coverage or moving, you can enroll outside of that window through a special enrollment period. Additionally, if you lose Medicaid coverage you will be able to enroll in healthcare through the Marketplace at any time through July 31, 2024. Even if you haven't found a plan that works for you before, the Inflation Reduction Act extended financial assistance to help people afford quality coverage for another three years, so it's worth checking what you may qualify for.
