The purpose of this memo is to inform ADAP Enrollment Workers of the upcoming Open Enrollment period and the ADAP Open Enrollment website. The website provides both Enrollment Workers and clients with detailed information on open enrollment, how to sign up for or renew coverage, information on the various insurance assistance programs and the documentation necessary for each program and will provide links to pertinent resources.
Starting this week, and in the coming weeks, the ADAP will send an Open Enrollment flyer with consolidated information to all active ADAP clients who currently do not have comprehensive healthcare coverage or are enrolled into the Office of AIDS Health Insurance Premium Payment (OA-HIPP) or Medicare Part D Premium Payment (MDPP) Programs, advising them of the upcoming 2022 Open Enrollment period. It will inform clients without insurance how they can apply for health insurance and enroll into one of ADAP's Insurance Assistance Programs (if eligible). It will also inform clients who are currently enrolled in the OA-HIPP and MDPP Programs, that action may be needed on their part in order to maintain their health insurance and enrollment into an ADAP Insurance Assistance Program.
The flyer will direct clients to the ADAP Open Enrollment (ADAP Open Enrollment Spanish) website for additional details, and links to various resources, such as Covered California, Medicare, and off-exchange health plans.
If you have any questions about the information covered in this memorandum, or need assistance navigating the Open Enrollment website, please contact the ADAP Client Services Call Center at (844) 421-7050 or your ADAP Advisor.
