Everything You Want to Know About Financial Assistance for 2019 Health Plans
Event Date: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm EDT
Event Type: Webinar / Teleconference
In this webinar, learn how you can help clients apply for financial assistance to help lower health insurance costs, and the role that taxes play in maintaining eligibility for this assistance. ACE TA Center presenters will provide case managers, benefits and enrollment staff, and other RWHAP program staff with an orientation to Premium Tax Credits (PTCs) and Cost Sharing Reductions (CSRs), including information on eligibility requirements for each subsidy. Presenters will use case studies to demonstrate how PTCs and CSRs work in practice, and underscore the importance of updating income and household information throughout the year to avoid under- and over-payments. Presenters will also explain how the RWHAP, including ADAP, can help clients pay premiums and cost-sharing expenses.
This training webinar will be especially useful to program managers, case managers and other staff that conduct outreach, benefits counseling and enrollment activities, as well as the recipient staff that support these programs. RWHAP recipients: please share this opportunity with your subrecipient providers!
