2022: OVERVIEW OF THE HEALTH INSURANCE MARKET IN KANSASOpen Enrollment for Individuals and Families for Plan Year 2022As a Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM), Kansas utilizes healthcare.gov for openenrollment. Some insurers do offer the ability for consumers to enroll directly in a Marketplaceplan with that company.Open enrollment is an opportunity for Kansans to make changes, evaluate whether to enroll incoverage, stay on their current policy, if available, or enroll in a different policy from the samecompany or a different company.Open enrollment for plan year 2022 begins on November 1, 2021 and ends January 15, 2022.You must enroll by December 15, 2021 if you would like your coverage to start on January1, 2022.After open enrollment ends on January15, 2022 the only way to obtaincoverage is via a special enrollmentperiod (SEP) due to a qualifying event.During open enrollment the federal government will suggest new plans for individuals onqualified health plans (QHPs) that companies are discontinuing after 2021. Consumers coveredby plans that will not be offered in 2022 do not have to enroll in the plan suggested to them.They can shop for any plan available to them depending on where they live. The new plan iseffective only when the premium is paid.Kansans should report changes to their income, address, and household information as soon aspossible. If changes are not reported, Federal taxes could be affected. Changes are reporteddirectly to the Marketplace by updating your application. Application updates may be doneonline, by phone, or in person. The FFM will re-determine enrollee eligibility for advancepremium tax credits (APTC) and income-based cost-sharing reductions (CSRs) for thosereceiving financial assistance using the most recent income data available.
Page 2Coverage may also be purchased off the Marketplace during the open enrollment period from thesame companies offering coverage on the Marketplace. There are twenty-four policies that areonly offered off the FFM that are not offered on the FFM. The only way to obtain coverage afteropen enrollment ends on January 15, 2022 is via a special enrollment period due to a qualifyingevent.Important Information Tax credits and cost-sharingreductions are only availablewhen purchasing on theMarketplace. If you qualify for cost-sharingreductions, you must pick a silverplan to receive the extra savings.Consumers should fully understand the network requirement of any plan they are considering.Companies may change the type of policy they sell from one year to the next resulting inpotential network implications. Consumers should check to be certain that their physicians andall other medical providers are in the network for the plan they are considering purchasing. Ifpurchasing a plan with an EPO network be certain to understand whether your plan requires youto use a “gatekeeper” before receiving services.
Page 3Companies may offer the following types of individual and small group policies: Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) – A type of managed care organization(health plan) that provides health care coverage through preferred health care providersonly. The EPO may require use of a gatekeeper, a primary care professional who makesreferrals for specialty care. Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) – A type of managed care organization(health plan) that provides health care coverage through a network of hospitals, doctorsand other health care providers. Typically, the HMO only pays for care provided by anin-network provider. Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) – A type of health plan that provides healthcare coverage through a network of providers. Typically, the PPO requires thepolicyholder to pay higher costs when they seek care from an out-of-network provider. Point of Service (POS) – A managed care plan that gives members the option of seekingcare from a specialist without a referral from a primary-care physician. Such servicesare subject to a higher deductible and/or coinsurance.The various metal levels indicate how you and your health insurance plan will share in the costsof care. There are catastrophic, bronze, expanded bronze, silver, gold and platinum metal levels.Catastrophic plans cover three primary care visits per year before the plan’s deductible is met.The premium paid each month is generally low, but the out-of-pocket costs for deductibles,copayments, and coinsurance are generally higher. To qualify for a catastrophic plan you mustbe under the age of 30 or receive a “hardship exemption” because the FFM has determined thatyou are unable to afford health coverage.Bronze plans offer the lowest monthly premium and the highest cost when you seek care.Expanded bronze plans either cover and pay for at least one major service, other than preventiveservices before the deductible or meet the requirements to be a high deductible health plan.Covered major services could include primary care visits, specialist visits, emergency roomservices, inpatient hospital services, generic drugs, preferred brand drugs, or specialty drugs.Platinum plans offer the highest monthly premium and the lowest costs when you receive care.
