Lost Your Insurance Due to Unemployment?

Published on May 19, 2020

Over 30 million Americans have filed for unemployment ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, many have lost their health insurance that was provided by their employers. If this is you, rest assured that we can help you stay covered during this time, at the lowest possible rate. Some options include:


1. Medicaid - you could qualify for Medicaid if your income is low/nonexistent


2. Marketplace Special Enrollment Period - certain life events (which include the loss of a job) can qualify you for a 60-day period to enroll even outside of the Open Enrollment period


3. Short term medical plan - this temporary plan provides coverage while in between jobs


If you are concerned about your health insurance during this time, call or email one of our agents today to get a quote. Stay safe and healthy!
