Open Enrollment For 2022 Individual Health Plans

The 2022 individual and family health plan open enrollment period is NOW through Jan. 15, 2022.

The time period for health coverage to start January 1, 2022, has passed but for coverage starting February 1, 2022, patients can buy a plan now December 16, 2021 through January 15, 2022.

Patients can visit CoverME.gov, Maine's new Health Insurance Marketplace, to shop for and select affordable health insurance coverage for 2022 during the Open Enrollment period now under way.

CoverME.gov’s Plan Compare tool was launched in to provide Maine people information about eligibility for financial assistance and evaluate plan options.

Additionally, over 50,000 Maine people enrolled in a Marketplace plan in 2021 have received their renewal notices with information on the new system.

According to a media release from Governor Mills, “more than 80 percent of people shopping at CoverME.gov qualify for help paying for health insurance. With extra assistance from the American Rescue Plan, nearly 25 percent of consumers in Maine enrolled in a plan in 2021 with a monthly premium of $10 or less. This assistance will continue to be available in 2022. Even those who were not eligible in the past because of their income can likely get assistance to lower monthly premiums and other out-of-pocket costs.”
