The annual Open Enrollment period for individual health insurance is underway. Now is the time…
Shopping for something as important as health coverage can feel overwhelming—especially if you’re looking for a plan to help protect your whole family. With the health insurance landscape changing every year, we know that it can be difficult to stay on top of which carriers and plans are available, so we do all that for you.
Tap Into Our Knowledgebase
By scheduling a 15-minute appointment with one of our licensed benefits counselors you’ll gain access to experts with vast industry insight—who are have studied state regulatory changes and are familiar with the latest available coverage options. Our counselors take the time to get to know your needs, concerns, and budget, to help find you the right plan, not just any plan.
Preparing for Your Appointment
After scheduling your appointment, you’ll want to gather the following information:
- The basics: your address, phone number, date of birth, SSN, household size, income level
- Plan and premium details for any employer-based plan available to you or your household
- List of current medications
- Name and zip code of the current healthcare providers that you’d like to continue using
- Payment information
Having this information ready when your counselor calls will help them efficiently guide you toward the best coverage for your needs.
Taking the Next Step
This year’s Open Enrollment period is November 1 – December 15. If you enroll in an ACA-compliant health insurance plan during this period, the effective date will be January 1, 2021. This is the only time of year to receive ACA-compliant health insurance coverage unless you were to experience a qualifying life event.
If you’re ready to see what the 2021 individual health insurance marketplace has to offer, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a licensed benefits counselor now. (Appointment availability becomes more limited beginning in the second half of November.)
