Monday 2/15 Last Day for health enrollments for COFA citizens

Posted on

Aloha friends,
I am writing to you today to thank you for all you have already done and to ask for additional advice and assistance in reaching all Citizens of the Federated Stated of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Palau who currently reside in Hawai’i and who have not yet enrolled in 2016 health insurance.  We only have one more week to reach everyone and help them enroll.  I humbly ask for your assistance in helping our Kōkua help the community by getting the word out.
·         The deadline to enroll is on Monday, 2/15/16.
·         All COFA citizens who enroll on HealthCare.Gov will have retroactive coverage that begins on 1/1/16.  This helps ensure there is no gap in their coverage.
·         All COFA Citizens who reside in Hawai’i and are between the ages of 19-64 WILL NOT be eligible for MedQuest unless they are blind, disabled or pregnant, so they MUST apply for coverage on HealthCare.Gov.
·         Hawai’i Health Connector Insurance expired on 12/31/15 for everyone.
·         Unless someone is covered through an employer, or is now on MedQuest (disabled, 65+, blind, pregnant), they may be UNINSURED.
·         This is the LAST CHANCE to get insurance for 2016.  If the 2/15/16 deadline is missed, most people will need to wait until 2017 to have health insurance.
