law makes it
“New
easier to afford

health insurance.”

President Biden recently signed a COVID-19 relief law that helps make health insurance more
affordable through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sometimes called Obamacare. The new
law increases financial assistance and makes more Floridians eligible to receive it. According
to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, four out of five people will find a health
insurance plan for $10 or less per month after financial assistance.
Currently have an ACA (Obamacare) plan? You may be eligible for more financial assistance
to lower your monthly bill or upgrade your plan at no additional cost.
Didn’t qualify for financial help in the past? If you were told your income is too high for
financial assistance (a subsidy), you may now qualify. No matter your age or income, you may
be eligible to enroll in an ACA plan that costs no more than 8.5% of your family income —
and it could be less.
Received Unemployment in 2021? If you received an unemployment payment in 2021, even if
only for one week, you may be eligible for additional financial assistance to lower your monthly
health insurance bill.
Due to the pandemic, there is a special opportunity to sign-up for or upgrade an ACA plan until
August 15. If you don’t have health insurance for any reason, and are eligible for an ACA plan,
you can sign up now to protect you and your family in 2021.
