The American Rescue Plan Act: How It Impacts Your Plan and Price!
President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) into law on March 11, 2021. Increased premium tax credits may lower your monthly premiums as some eligibility thresholds expanded!
If you currently have a subsidized plan through Pennie.com or GetCoveredNJ, you may be eligible for even more savings. Pennie and GetCoveredNJ are said to automatically apply new credits in the next few months. The additional savings should apply retroactive to January 1st, when you file 2021 taxes.
If you are in a State that uses Healthcare.gov, you must update to see new savings apply to your price. If you do not update you will receive the savings when you file your 2021 taxes. We can help you update!
If you are eligible or become eligible for unemployment in 2021, you may qualify for even more savings (possibly a $0 plan), contact us for more details.
We are STILL here for ALL your insurance needs!
WE ARE HERE TO HELP!!!

More On The American Rescue Plan
Now through August 15, 2021 (end of 2021 in NJ) PA consumers are eligible to sign up for and change health insurance coverage without a “qualifying life event”. This August date was extended from May 15th, and may be extended again, as things are rapidly changing.
If you overestimated your 2020 income, unlike in prior years you may not have to repay when completing your 2020 taxes. If you have already completed your 2020 taxes, consult a tax expert for how to reconcile.
We are certified for: Pennie.com (PA), GetCoveredNJ (NJ), Maryland Health Connection (MD), and many Healthcare.gov states. If you currently have an account and want to designate us as your broker (if we aren’t already tied to you), here is how you can do so, at no cost to you what so ever!
Independence Blue Cross (Philadelphia, PA Region) recommends an accident, critical illness, or hospital plan to expand your coverage. These are plans that PAY YOU directly (or the provider) when unforeseen events occur, similar to Aflac (we offer them too) but endorsed by Independence Blue Cross. For example, it would help with lost wages while out of work. These plans are offered through Lifesecure and are available in most states. Click our easy to use link for more details and pricing
Warning: This is NOT HEALTH INSURANCE, it is an indemnity plan meant to fill gaps that currently exist within health insurance.
If you are healthy and tired of paying for stacked-by-the-Affordable-Care-Act plans that include services you never use, we are here to help you decide if a less-expensive option serves your needs.
Be careful of the “health plans” being sold by mass-telemarketers, incorrectly described as health insurance. “Health Plans” are NOT INSURANCE and will not catch you if you fall. Some of them are straight-up junk and will never pay a claim. Protect your income and assets with insurance which includes a STOP LOSS.
Short Term Medical requires that you answer medical questions, but this is the only “Obamacare alternative” that protects your income and assets with an out of pocket maximum or “stop loss”. Pair it with UHC’s Health Protector Guard for a more comprehensive plan! Quote UHC Options Now (We recommend a higher deductible Short Term with a Health Protector Guard option that fits your budget).
Under President Obama short term plans were mandated to 3 months, and the restriction was lifted by President Trump. Now is the time to lock in a long-duration short term medical plan, as new legislation may restrict the duration back to 3 months. For states that allow for longer durations, this is offering a plan for the next 1-3 years, providing peace of mind as things change from month to month, year to year.
Joe and Robyn have health insurance available through a few local and national associations for those not eligible for the subsidy and in good health!
