Recently legislation was passed called the American Rescue Plan Act. This act makes improvements in access and affordability of health coverage through the Marketplace by increasing eligibility for financial assistance to help pay for premiums. Clients can get the subsidy now or they can wait until the end of the year for an adjustment.

Healthcare.gov also has extended the timeframe for electing a Special Enrollment Period to access health insurance. This deadline has been extended until August 15, 2021.
