From VDH Today for PLWHs … Be sure to read on …
If consumers are happy with their current plan and have no changes in income, then they will be automatically re-enrolled for 2015. If consumers choose to not stay with their current plan, and would like continued assistance in having VA ADAP pay for premiums and medication co-pays, they would have to choose an approved VA ADAP plan. Consumers in the Federally-facilitated Marketplace will receive notices from the Marketplace shortly before open enrollment begins explaining the auto-enrollment process and how they can return to the Marketplace to see if they qualify for additional financial assistance and shop for plans. Consumers will also receive notices from their insurance company about their new 2015 plan.
VDH continues to review insurance plan information as it becomes available. We anticipate sending out a letter to all Direct ADAP clients and ACA clients by October 1.
