Enrollment Assistance: Cover Kansas

Cover Kansas‘ Affordable Care Act open enrollment navigators are now offering a new feature where virtual navigators can help any Kansan over the phone or secure video call to walk folks through plan selection, filling out the application, or just answering questions and defining confusing terms. These services are offered in Spanish too! This new feature breaks down barriers to accessing navigators, meaning that more people can have access to health insurance in 2022, which is really exciting. With additional subsidies and tax credits this year, more people are also qualified for financial assistance than ever before.

The ACA open enrollment deadline is Dec. 15 for coverage starting Jan. 1, 2022, or by Jan. 15, 2022, to get coverage starting in Feb. 2022.
