The Affordable Care Act brought on many changes in the health insurance industry. The biggest one of all was the established Open Enrollment Period from November through January. This is the time of year when anyone who would like to change their current plans or to start a new one for the following year can do so with no limitations.
As some of you may know that we are right in the middle of this! If you decide on a plan with any insurance carrier by December 15th, the effective date will be January 1st for your new policy. The open enrollment period does run through January 31st for an effective date of February or March. This goes for anyone enrolled through the Health Insurance Marketplace or with a private insurance carrier directly.
Corrie and Erika in our benefits department are here Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM to answer any questions you may have! If you need to know about coverage options or get quotes for your family, please call today.
From your friends in the insurance business, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
