It's the time of year when Community Health Options files proposed 2022 individual health plan rates. Due to recent state legislation, next year's individual health plans will look slightly different than previous years. Maine insurance carriers will offer a handful of consistent Clear Choice plan designs to make it easier for consumers to compare health plans from different insurers. All individual health plans will now have a new name.
Click here to see a sample of our proposed individual health plan rates that are pending regulatory approval. Please note that these rates do not account for any Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC) subsidies that Members may receive.
Our 2022 plans also include some valuable new features that we have added based on Member feedback, including expanded telehealth services for all and a national provider network option. We will continue to include coverage of COVID-19 vaccinations at no cost, access to our Site of Care program, and pharmacy support through our Script Savers program.
The Bureau of Insurance will hold a public forum on 2022 individual health plan rates on July 26, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. Read more and register at the State of Maine website. For more information about proposed rates, you may also contact Member Services, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., at (855) 624-6463.
One in five American adults experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. Most people with mental and behavioral health issues can get better with treatment. Community Health Options firmly believes in treating the whole person and that’s why we launched Health Options Online, a new behavioral telemedicine program for our Members.
