The chart above includes the total number of individuals who have submitted applications and selected plans and do not include any individuals who opted for an automatic re-enrollment.

Don’t forget: the ACA Open Enrollment Period ends on December 15th! Please don’t forget to reach out to your currentlyenrolled clients and ensure their medical and financial needs still align withthe current ACA plan for which they are enrolled.

Clients who do not choose another plan for 2019, will automatically be re-enrolled in the plan they selected in 2018. If their income or any other situation changes, their current ACA health plan may not be a good fit. For example, the subsidy and cost-sharing credits applied to their plans could change and ultimately raise their premiums for 2019. Alternatively, depending on their income, they may now qualify for Medicaid or CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program.)

Here is a quick reference for 2019 Federal Poverty Levels impacting your client’s subsidies, cost-sharing credits and ability to qualify for their State Medicaid & CHIP Program.
