Helping Dane County residents pay for health insurance

The Health Insurance Marketplace is now open! If you’re planning on enrolling in a plan during this time and are eligible for HealthConnect assistance, the entire cost of your monthly premium can be covered for the remainder of this year. Simply apply today to get the help you need.  

Do you make too much to qualify for BadgerCare, but not enough to afford your health insurance? Do you use the Health Insurance Marketplace, but have trouble affording your premiums?
This program may help.

At United Way of Dane County, we believe cost should not prevent you from getting the health care you deserve. That’s why we’re helping lower-income individuals and families who make too much to be eligible for BadgerCare purchase insurance in the Marketplace via our HealthConnect Premium Assistance Program.

Made possible by generous donations from UW Health and Quartz, HealthConnect can pay the balance of eligible participants’ monthly health insurance premiums not covered by the Premium Tax Credit available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Plus, HealthConnect offers 20 different local plans to choose from – making sure each participant has control over the location, provider and pharmacy from which they get their care.

Open enrollment begins November 1, 2021 and runs through January 15, 2022. However, for guaranteed coverage beginning on January 1, 2022, you must sign up by December 15, 2021. If you enroll in your plan within that time and are eligible for HealthConnect assistance, the entire cost of your monthly premium can be covered starting at the beginning of the New Year. Simply apply today to get the help you need.

HealthConnect has helped me put some of my financial worries aside and concentrate on a living a happier lifestyle. I’m now able to pay off my debt and see my doctor on a regular basis to help with my family history of heart disease.
