Free Assistance on 2021 Health Care Options Available To NFLA Members
The United States Supreme Court will hear arguments early next month on whether the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is constitutional.
The Court is expected to issue its decision before its full session ends in June, 2021. Meanwhile, the health law that affects millions of Americans remains fully in effect for all its medical insurance coverage for the remainder of 2020.
However, this Is a reminder that the registration period for 2021 health insurance under this law begins this Sunday, November 1 and continues until Tuesday, December 15.
As an NFL Alumni member, you again have a tremendous resource to help you cut through the government red tape regarding 2021 health insurance that becomes effective on January 1.
We at NFL Alumni were pleased that the NFL league office several years ago responded to our pleas to have free confidential assistance provided to you regarding your options when you purchase health insurance in the Marketplace.
You player-members again may dial 800-NFL-GOAL (800-635-4625) for help in this critical area. An NFL customer service advocate will be available starting this Monday from 9AM-6PM (ET) and each weekday to answer questions and help you to buy ACA insurance. You also can visit NFLhealthcareinformation.com for additional assistance.
If you already are fortunate to have health insurance though your employer, your spouse’s employer or private coverage, you simply may keep that coverage in 2021.
Also, if you are on Medicare, then eligible player-members should make certain you are receiving the Medicare financial supplement that exists under the new NFL collective bargaining agreement. If you are uncertain whether you qualify for this Medicare supplement, call 800-NFL-GOAL, option 2.
Reminder: The deadline to apply for 2021 health insurance under the ACA is December 15 or your coverage options may be limited.
We at NFL Alumni encourage you to call starting next week. The NFL Health Care Information Service is confidential and free.
