Do you currently receive LA HAP benefits but don’t have health insurance? You might consider signing up for a Marketplace health insurance plan.
Health insurance is a great resource to help you meet all your medical needs. And once you’re enrolled in health insurance, LA HAP can help cover the costs. We can help pay for premiums and the copays and deductibles for services covered by your insurance.
Usually, enrollment in Marketplace health insurance (also known as Obamacare) is only open for a short period in the fall of each year. But 2021 is different. You can enroll in the Special Enrollment Period open from now until August 15th.
Interested in enrolling? Here’s what you’ll need to do:
STEP 1: ENROLL IN A MARKETPLACE PLAN
To get started selecting a Marketplace plan, go to healthcare.gov. There they will also review your eligibility for Medicaid.
Make sure the Marketplace plan you select covers all your medications and providers. We’ve created a handy Health Insurance Passport Tool to help you do that.
You might like help figuring out which plan is best for you. Agents, brokers, and assisters provide help for free. You can locate one near you with the official Find Local Help search engine.
For even more personalized assistance with Marketplace enrollment, you can work with a case manager. Visit our Find a Case Manager page to locate case managers in your area.
STEP 2: SEND YOUR MARKETPLACE PLAN INFORMATION TO LA HAP
Now that you’ve enrolled, we’ll need some information to start paying your monthly plan premiums. There are a few ways you can do that!
Go to the new LA HAP Member Portal, where you can enter your plan information and upload a copy of the plan invoice that shows the monthly premium amount.
A case manager can also help you to get us the plan information. Visit our Find a Case Manager page to locate case managers in your area.
