Marketplace Open Enrollment until Jan 15! Help give the gift of health!

December 15, 2021

Did you know that the Biden Administration extended the Open Enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace plans to January 15, 2022? This is great news for individuals and families who still need to sign up for health insurance for next year, and CCHCC is here to help!

Last week we wrapped up our work on Medicare Open Enrollment, and we were pleased to help so many of our community members sign up for the plans that work best for them, keeping them in-network with their doctors and making sure their prescriptions are covered!

Until recently, we were in the midst of two overlapping Open Enrollments: Medicare Open Enrollment for Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plans AND the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace Open Enrollment for private health insurance and subsidies!

To learn more about the ACA Marketplace Open Enrollment, please visit our Marketplace Open Enrollment Center.

But, CCHCC provides more than enrollment help – we help people get the health care they need. As part of our enrollment services, we help people get set up with “medical homes” where they can receive primary and preventive care, and referrals for specialty care. We also help pay for people’s prescriptions when they can’t afford them, and we help our clients gain access to affordable dental, vision, and mental health services. Our work gives our clients the gift of health.

And, did you know that CCHCC is the only organization in Champaign County that can help local residents with BOTH Medicare Open Enrollment, as well as ACA Marketplace Open Enrollment? And, we also help with Medicaid enrollment, which is open year-round! And our services are FREE! You can help support CCHCC’s Open Enrollment work by sharing our information with others so that they can get help getting covered, and also by making a financial contribution to CCHCC.

Did you also know that Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) gets no federal or state funding to help community members enroll in health insurance? And yet, even without federal or state funding, CCHCC has been doing enrollment work for the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace plans since the very beginning – October 2013. And, we’ve been doing Medicare enrollment work even longer, and our services are free!

How can we do this work without federal or state grants? The funding that supports CCHCC’s enrollment work comes from community support – including individual contributions from people like you!
