Recent Changes: New COBRA Subsidies for 2021

I already elected COBRA following job loss and have been paying the premiums. Can I get this subsidy?

Yes.  The subsidy will be available beginning April 1, 2021, and you can have it for up to 6 months or until your COBRA eligibility ends, whichever comes first.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
