JFS assists all community members with accessing health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Anyone can sign up during Open Enrollment, but those facing qualifying life events can apply during a special enrollment period. Qualifying life events include:
- Job change or loss
- Household change (marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of child)
- Loss of other health coverage
- Denial by Medicaid or CHIP coverage
- Moving your residence outside your insurance’s plan’s service area
- Gaining citizenship
- Leaving incarceration
We can also assist qualifying individuals and families in applying for Medicaid throughout the year.
