Need health insurance? You can get insurance through the GetCoveredNJ. The enrollment window was extended for New Jerseyans in need of coverage through the COVID-19 Special Enrollment Period. You may also enroll or change your existing plan if you’ve had certain life events, such as pregnancy, having a baby, or loss of income.
The federal government recently passed a COVID-19 relief bill, the American Rescue Plan Act. The new law reduces health insurance premiums by providing more financial help to eligible consumers who purchase a plan through GetCoveredNJ. The State of New Jersey is also providing more financial help to lower health insurance costs for residents.
More people than ever will qualify for financial help. If you did not qualify for financial help before because your income was too high, you may qualify now under the state and federal changes. If you already receive financial help, you will likely be eligible for additional premium reductions. These new changes make coverage more affordable at many income levels.
There's more reason than ever to check out your options.
