Insurance Info if Furloughed or Laid-Off

Did you lose your health insurance because of a job layoff/furlough or other life change? If you had qualifying health coverage, according to healthcare.gov, you only have SIXTY days to secure marketplace coverage!

It is called a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) but the “window” is only open for SIXTY days. If you need assistance or have more questions, please dial 211! Click here for Covering Wisconsin, a nonprofit agency that helps people figure out health insurance coverage for free! Help is available across the state!

And, remember, in Dane County*, if your new income falls between 100 and 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, you may be able to get your health insurance premiums paid thru the HealthConnect program, administered by United Way of Dane County.
