Great News For Medicare Eligible Individuals Enrolled In ACA Plans!

 

Great news for those whom stayed on an ACA plan when they first became Medicare eligible!  CMS has temporarily changed its rules to offer a reprieve from penalties for people who kept Affordable Care Act policies after becoming eligible for Medicare.

 

Those who qualify include people 65 and older who have a marketplace plan or had one they lost or canceled, as well as people who have qualified for Medicare due to a disability but chose to use marketplace plans.  Consumers who already pay the penalty because they had a Marketplace plan can request that it be eliminated or reduced.

 

Consumers who are affected must request a waiver by 9/30/17.  For information on how to apply for the waiver, officially called “time-limited equitable relief,” go to the Medicare Rights Center’s Medicare Interactive webpage or call the center’s helpline at 800-333-4114.
