Our allies at Cover Texas Now have provided vital information for Texans applying for health care during this enrollment period. Please see below.

“The vast majority of Texans who sign up for a health plan through the Marketplace will receive financial assistance to help pay their monthly premium costs, and some will also get assistance to help with out-of-pocket costs like deductibles and office visit co-pays…Financial help to afford health insurance costs, including tax credits for premiums and cost-sharing reductions for out-of-pocket costs, is still in place.

Texans can get help from trained enrollment assisters in their community to choose the best plan for their health care needs and budget.

Local enrollment assistance programs are listed on:
connector.getcoveredamerica.org
localhelp.healthcare.gov.

Texans can also call 2-1-1 to get connected with local enrollment centers.”
