Any West Virginia resident will be able to come to the event to get free enrollment or re-enrollment help for Marketplace plans. Representatives will be able to answer questions and provide information on who qualifies for financial assistance and how much applicants may receive.
Anyone who is not eligible for insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, or employer-based insurance is eligible to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act’s provisions. New rules under the American Rescue Plan Act have expanded subsidies and lowered monthly premiums. This year, 4 out of 5 will qualify for a plan at less than $10 per month.
Even most high-income earners will now be able to qualify for the lower-cost plans.

“Most people will be able to qualify for substantially lower costs this year if they get their insurance on the Marketplace,” said Jeremy Smith, program director for WV Navigator. “We are really urging people to look at the new plans and prices that are being released this year. In a lot of cases, the plans are more affordable than we have ever seen. Even if you have looked into insurance on the Marketplace in past years and were not very happy, you should definitely look into it again this year.” Smith says getting help signing up is important, as many people are overwhelmed by the options or may not realize how to shop for affordable health coverage.

The Health Insurance Marketplace offers options for people to get health insurance who can’t get it through a job, Medicare, Medicaid or another qualifying source. The Marketplace has a variety of private health insurance policies you can pick from. What you pay depends on your income. Most people will qualify for a new monthly tax credit (Advanced Premium Tax Credit) that will lower your monthly payments right away. Also, some people will qualify for help paying their co-pays and deductibles. Seven out of ten people will qualify for immediate savings to help pay their monthly premiums.
For those that want coverage on Jan. 1, the deadline to enroll in the program is Dec. 15. WV Navigator will be holding more enrollment events across the state, including one in Wheeling on Dec. 15. WV Navigator is also able to provide enrollment assistance over the phone or in-person in their offices in Fairmont, Charleston, Huntington and Martinsburg.
