Marketplace Facts

  • Financial assistance is still available for most consumers to help lower the cost of their plan. With the American Rescue Plan, more people are seeing savings. New, expanded subsidies means plans are more affordable than ever before.
  • If you don’t have health coverage, you can sign up for a marketplace plan now to hold you over until your circumstances change. Marketplace plans are likely to be more affordable than COBRA, and offer much better coverage than short-term insurance plans. And, if you get a new job with new coverage, you can easily switch.
  • The Marketplace does not negatively affect immigration status. If fact, new guidance makes it clear that the use of most public benefits programs, such as Medicaid, CHIP, and the health insurance marketplace, will not have an impact on an individual’s immigration status.
