New Law, American Rescue Plan

President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law on March 11, 2021.  Under the new law, many people who buy their own health insurance directly through Covered California will become eligible to receive additional tax credits to reduce their monthly premiums. The new law will ensure consumers eligible for coverage do not pay more than 8.5 percent of their overall household income.

VHP members are not required to take any action. Covered California will automatically apply additional tax credits to those who qualify.  You should have received notice from Covered California about your premium reduction. You may see a change in your invoice total next month.  If you have a credit or a zero balance due, an invoice will not be generated.  For questions about your invoice balance, please contact VHP Member Services at 1.888.421.8444 (toll-free) or email [email protected].  To find additional details online about the American Rescue Plan, visit today.
