We are in the third and final month of open enrollment. This is the time when one can enroll in individual or family health insurance or change health plans for the next calendar year. With the new year already in progress, the next available effective date is February 1. To obtain a February 1 effective date you just enroll by January 15th. Enrolling from Jan 16 through Jan 31 results in a March 1 effective date (the last available effective date of open enrollment).
For those who leave an employer sponsored plan, move, get married, or have another qualified life event, there is a special enrollment opportunity to enroll in coverage.
Note: This open enrollment period is not for those in Medicare.
Let us know if you have any questions or need help finding coverage.
Thanks, Phil Dougherty
