The enrollment period for coverage under the Affordable Care Act is now open. This year, due to action from the federal administration, the open enrollment period is shorter and less resources are being directed to help people get covered.
It is critical for the health and well-being of our City, that residents explore their options under the ACA between NOW and December 15th when enrollment will end.
You can get help enrolling by visiting www.takecareutah.org or by simply calling 2-1-1
According to Utah Health Policy Project, nearly 16,493 Salt Lake City residents enrolled in the ACA in 2017. With less resources to get the word out, it is important we each do our part to ensure that Salt Lake City is covered.
There has been a lot of news on the rising cost of plans, but what you may not have heard is that subsidies will MATCH the rise in costs. In fact, in Salt Lake City, a family of four making $98,400 can receive a premium subsidy.
