Letter: Open enrollment for health insurance happening now

By Staff | Nov 20, 2021

As we continue to battle the ongoing waves of COVID-19, there are still thousands of Utah families who lack the protection of health care coverage. The good news is that starting November 1st, and lasting until January 15th, there is a new open enrollment period for the healthcare.gov health insurance marketplace, with more free and low-cost plans available than ever before!

Thanks to a bipartisan congressional response to the pandemic, Utahns are saving big on health care–with a 59% drop in premiums and a massive 90% drop in deductibles. With this new financial assistance, nearly half of Utah enrollees can find a plan for $10 or less per month.

Beyond the healthcare.gov marketplace, Utahns also have free or low-cost health coverage options through our new voter-supported Medicaid expansion, in the Children’s Health Insurance Program, through Utah’s Premium Partnership, and more.

There is FREE help available navigating your options and choosing the right plan. Take Care Utah is a local nonprofit organization with a team of health access assisters standing by to assist you and your family. Our staff speak several languages, and take appointments in person or virtually. You can book an appointment in just a few clicks if you visit TakeCareUtah.org, or over the phone if you call 801-433-2299.

Now, more than ever, it is clear that our health is fragile, and we must protect our communities. Get covered, get vaccinated, and get the word out that help is available.
