Even if they enrolled last year, Utahns should reassess their options to make sure they have an affordable plan that is right for them. Medicaid and CHIP offer year-round enrollment, but this open enrollment period is the perfect time for families to explore their options. Following full Medicaid expansion, which began in January 2020 there are even more coverage options for Utahns this year.
Take Care Utah urges Utahns to take advantage of the financial assistance available and encourages our community to get signed up for low-cost health insurance coverage before the December 15th deadline.
“As Utah's rate of uninsured kids continues to climb, we know when parents are covered, children are more likely to be insured as well," said Sarah Leetham, Healthy Kids Program Director. The Marketplace offers families options for coverage they may not have elsewhere. Some families have specific plan needs such as specialty providers, prescriptions for children, or disease management. The Take Care Utah team is here to help families find the plan that works best for them and ensure these benefits are accessible once enrolled.”
Luis Rios, Lead Broker, added, "Now more than ever during this pandemic is important to understand and look at your healthcare options, the Take Care Utah team is ready to help remotely through a video chat, screen share or phone call so Utahns can stay home safe!”
