Connecticut: @AccessHealthCT issues statement re. expanded #ACA subsidies under the #ARP

via Access Health CT (via forwarded email):

Dear Brokers,
 
A lot has transpired regarding the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021*. Our team has been meeting with CMS, other state-based marketplaces, our insurance carriers, and other stakeholders, and is in the process of putting together a strategic plan to implement these changes.

We know some of you might be getting questions from customers/stakeholders in the days to come since the federal exchange (Healthcare.gov) will have a robust national campaign supported by President Biden to help spread the word. Here’s what you should know: 

Timelines are/will be different: Healthcare.gov will be implementing the subsidy expansion and a possible Special Enrollment Period at a different time than Access Health CT (AHCT). It may start earlier and may end later than CT (we do not know dates at this time).

Access Health CT:

  • AHCT is the state-based marketplace in Connecticut and is separate from Healthcare.gov.
  • Our organization is currently creating a plan to implement the subsidy expansion and more information will be provided in the near future.

Sincerely,

Your Access Health CT Team
