AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Now through May 15, Texas residents may select Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan for healthcare coverage in 138 counties through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a special enrollment period for individuals and families to apply and enroll for the coverage they need. As the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges, Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan continues to offer a variety of health insurance offerings that are among the most affordable in the state.
"We know many Texans are struggling because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and getting health coverage has never been more important," said Mark Sanders, President and CEO of Superior HealthPlan. "Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan has the experience and resources to provide quality care to people when it matters most, and we're pleased to offer a variety of plan options that provide peace of mind during this special enrollment period."
Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan offers increased value, convenient services, and benefits that help make health insurance fit within people's lives. For those impacted by job loss during the pandemic, Ambetter from Superior HealthPlan provides an alternative that is often more affordable than COBRA, the health insurance program that allows people to continue their employer-provided coverage. COBRA will also eventually expire, requiring a person to seek new coverage.
