Covering Kids & Families of Indiana is
Here to Help with Marketplace Enrollment
By a special White House Executive Order, the Healthcare.gov Marketplace will be reopened from February 15th to May 15th, 2021. This special enrollment period will allow hundreds of thousands of Hoosiers access to comprehensive healthcare insurance without waiting for later enrollment opportunities. Even better, the majority of Hoosiers that apply will qualify for reduced premium costs that may make a Marketplace plan a very affordable option. Overwhelmed, confused or frustrated with getting insured? Covering Kids & Families of Indiana is here to help.
Since 1999, Covering Kids & Families of Indiana (CKF) has been helping Hoosiers get and keep healthcare coverage. Our certified Indiana Navigators are a free, expert resource for Hoosiers exploring health insurance options for themselves and their loved ones. CKF Navigators guide, assist and support consumers every step of the way from application to coverage. We also assist in deciding if a Marketplace plan, Medicaid, the Healthy Indiana Plan, Children’s Health Insurance Program, Hoosier Healthwise or other option is the best fit for you.
Now, with hundreds of thousands across Indiana experiencing unemployment, loss of income and the loss of health insurance through their employer, CKF is here to help our Hoosier neighbors through this unprecedented time. Hoosiers need healthcare coverage to get healthy and stay healthy throughout this crisis and beyond.
- Wherever you live in Indiana, CKF Navigators can help you sign up for healthcare coverage. Virtual appointments with a certified Indiana Navigator are available statewide. In-person assistance, with all the precautions needed to keep you safe, is available for those who prefer in most areas.
- CKF offers assistance with a wide variety of coverage options. Not sure what you need or which programs you qualify for? We will help you figure that out. Many Hoosiers’ life circumstances have changed, and we will make sure you know what your choices are.
- Appointments with CKF are easy to make. Just visit us at ckfindiana.org or call us at 1-888-975-4CKF, and we will get you started on your path to coverage.
