Hawaii Residents Encouraged to Apply for Health Insurance During Biden’s Special Enrollment Period
The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs is encouraging residents to visit HealthCare.gov to enroll in a health insurance, following President Joe Biden’s Executive Order of Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for Health Insurance Marketplace coverage.
“As we continue to tackle this pandemic, it is more critical than ever to ensure that Hawaii’s uninsured and underinsured have access to affordable healthcare,” said Insurance Commissioner Colin Hayashida.
“This special enrollment period allows individuals and families a chance to get comprehensive health insurance coverage if they qualify.”
From February 15 to May 15, SEP will be available on the website in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents submitting a new application or updating an existing application can access SEP through HealthCare.gov or by calling the Marketplace call center at (800) 318-2596.
HealthCare.gov is a federal service that helps people shop and enroll for a health insurance.
