Purchasing an ACA Marketplace Plan to cover ABA therapy Q: When can I purchase an ACA plan? A: Open enrollment is November 1, 2015 – January 31, 2016. You can only purchase an ACA plan outside of these dates if you qualify for a special enrollment period (change in family status (for example, marriage or birth of a child) or loss of other health coverage). Q: Do all ACA Marketplace Plans cover ABA? A: Yes. All Indiana Marketplace Plans follow the Autism Mandate and cover ABA Q: The rest of our family doesn’t need an ACA plan. Can I buy one just for my child? A: Yes, you can buy a “child only” policy on the ACA marketplace at healthcare.gov Q: Can our child keep the employer based insurance or Medicaid we have for them as well? A: Yes, your child can have Medicaid or other family private insurance and still get a plan on the ACA Marketplace. Tip: if a navigator or assister says you can not do this, contact the Department of Insurance 317-232-2385 Q
