Extending Enhanced ACA Subsidies Through 2025

The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have passed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), and President Biden has signed the bill into law.

Originally set to expire at the end of this year, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) extends the enhanced American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) ACA premium tax credit subsidies through 2025.

ARPA included temporary subsidy increases for health insurance, including larger ACA subsidies for individuals between 100—400% Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and expanded subsidy eligibility for individuals above 400% FPL.

Client Marketplace Notices visible through your HealthSherpa account

As an ACA agent, you know there are several notices the Marketplace sends to your client with regards to their eligibility, 1095 A, and follow ups.

Instead of asking your clients for these notices, you can now access them directly from each client’s profile in your HealthSherpa for Agents account.

HealthSherpa Update Jan. 26, 2023

Prepare for Medicaid Unwinding: PHE ends March 31

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress passed legislation to ensure people would have access to health coverage and other benefits while the country was in a state of public health emergency (PHE). Millions of people who lost employer-sponsored coverage enrolled in Medicaid and have had continuous coverage the past few years. When the PHE officially ends on March 31, 2023 people who have had Medicaid coverage will go through "Medicaid Unwinding", a state-run process to redetermine whether or not they’re still eligible for Medicaid.

As many as 15 million people will lose Medicaid coverage during the unwinding process, and almost 3 million of them will qualify for ACA Marketplace coverage. This is an opportunity for agents to build their book and enroll new customers in ACA plans during the Special Enrollment Period. HealthSherpa will continue to share information about Medicaid Unwinding in the coming weeks as the end of the PHE approaches.

Connect accounts by February 24 or lose EDE access

Beginning February 24, 2023 Agents and brokers who have not integrated their HealthSherpa for Agents accounts with their CMS FFM accounts will not be able to use their HealthSherpa account (or any other account with an EDE partner) to submit applications via EDE without completing this authentication. If you haven't already, visit the settings tab in your HealthSherpa for Agents account and make sure you're linked to CMS. You are required to re-authenticate every 30 days to maintain access.

Full details and step by step instructions are available in our FAQ.

Special Enrollment Period FAQ

Looking for more information on the Special Enrollment Period (SEP)? Now is a good time to familiarize yourself with ways consumers can still enroll so you can continue to grow your ACA book outside of Open Enrollment. Read our SEP FAQ to learn more.
