OPEN ENROLLMENT 2019
It’s that time of the year again! Yes, the time to sign up for individual health insurance! This time of the year is referred to as Open Enrollment.
Open Enrollment 2019 starts on November 1, 2018, and ends on December 15, 2018. Coverage for plans purchased during this time will begin on January 1, 2019.
What does this mean for you? Well, now is your time to see if you can save money by exploring new plans, or finally get coverage if you aren’t currently covered.
If you miss the 2019 Open Enrollment Period and you do not qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP), you will have to wait until Open Enrollment begins for 2020. In order to qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, you must have experienced a qualifying life event that prevented you from meeting the enrollment deadline.
Qualifying life events can include:
- The loss of health insurance through a job or Medicare eligibility.
- Household changes such as marriage, divorce, a death in the family, or having a baby.
- A change in your home address.
