Encourage Clients to Take Advantage of Enhanced ATPCs

Extended SEP ends August 15, 2021.

  


The SEP extension to further help consumers take advantage of Enhanced ATPCs, will be ending August 15, 2021.


Clients still have time to enroll in an Ambetter Marketplace plan to take advantage of the increased savings and lower costs made available by the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

It’s been estimated the number of those eligible for a subsidy on the Marketplace increased by 20% with the passage of the ARP.* Consumers’ required contributions are lowered at all income levels thereby increasing APTC. Individuals earning 100-150% FPL will be eligible for fully subsidized coverage. Additionally, premiums are capped at 8.5% of income for those above 400% FPL removing the “subsidy cliff.”
