2023 Marketplace health insurance plans and prices are now available for review

Final Open Enrollment preparation checklist

1. Learn more about the Marketplace plans offered in your area. Contact your local RWHAP Part B ADAP or Part A Program to see if they are assessing and recommending plans for people with HIV. If no one in your area is analyzing Marketplace plans, preview plan options and prices on HealthCare.gov. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the offerings, help consumers identify the plan that best fits their needs using the ACE TA Center Health Care Plan Selection Worksheet.

2. Schedule enrollment appointments and help clients prepare to complete their application. Schedule enrollment appointments now and help clients gather the information and documentation they will need during their enrollment appointment. The following information is helpful to have during an enrollment appointment:

  • Information about the applicant and their household members including dates of birth, existing health coverage, income information and social security numbers if they have them
  • Their preferred hospital
  • The names of their primary care provider (PCP) and HIV specialist (if different), and any other health professionals they regularly see
  • A list of current HIV and non-HIV prescription medications and their dosage

3. Familiarize yourself with the different types of financial assistance for Marketplace plans available for eligible clients. It’s important to understand what kinds of financial support are available to help consumers pay for health insurance. Two types of financial assistance are available through the Marketplace: Premium Tax Credits (PTCs) and Cost-Sharing Reductions (CSRs). 

Learn more about PTCs and CSRs including who is eligible, how to apply, and the relationship between premium tax credits and tax filing by visiting the ACE TA Center FAQ on PTCs and CSRs, or completing the Understanding Premium Tax Credits and Cost-Sharing Reductions eLearning Module.
