Health Insurance Open Enrollment 2021

Health Insurance Marketplace

Through the Marketplace, you can access quality health plans, make apples-to-apples comparisons between different options, and access new tax credits that could lower your monthly premiums right away.

  • Treatment in the hospital for inpatient care
  • Care before and after your baby is born
  • Mental health and substance use disorder services: This includes behavioral health treatment, counseling, and psychotherapy
  • Your prescription drugs
  • Services and devices to help you recover if you are injured, or have a disability or chronic condition. This includes physical and occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, psychiatric rehabilitation, and more.
  • Your lab tests
  • Preventive services including counseling, screenings, and vaccines to keep you healthy and care for managing a chronic disease.
  • Pediatric services: This includes dental care and vision care for kids

If you need assistance, Patty Lovell and her team at WMCA are available to help you understand your options to enroll or re-enroll.  Many people qualify for tax credits that lower their monthly premiums. Referrals for help with MaineCare and Medicare are also available.
