It's not too late to sign up for 2021 health coverage under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden administration is reopening health plan enrollment from February 15 to May 15, 2021.
To get covered, you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Utah. If you need personalized help, you can reach out to an enrollment assistant. Most enrollment helpers are working remotely during the COVID crisis.
Where's the Utah Health Care Exchange?
You can find the Utah health insurance exchange for Utah residents at Healthcare.gov. This is where you can learn about the various health insurance options available to you under Obamacare. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online.
Getting Personalized Help with Enrollment
In Utah, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free help from an enrollment assistant or from a licensed health insurance agent or broker.
Enrollment assistants aren’t allowed to recommend a plan for you. Rather, they can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose.
To find an enrollment assistant in Utah, we recommend you begin with Take Care Utah. This nonprofit organization strives to help Utah residents understand their options for affordable health care coverage. Take Care Utah can connect you with a local enrollment specialist who will answer your questions and help you apply for a plan. All services are free of charge.
To reach Take Care Utah, go to www.takecareutah.org or call 2-1-1 (inside Utah). From there, you can type or say your ZIP Code to find the nearest enrollment assistants.
You can also search for an assistant using the Find Local Help page at HealthCare.gov. There, you enter your zip code to get a list of helpers available in your area.
Private insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government trained assistants, they are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.
To directly connect with a Utah insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)
