Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is the ONLY time to enroll in a plan, change plans or apply for cost assistance for the ENTIRE year.

If you are already enrolled, it is important to check your coverage at this time. Not all plans auto-renew, and it may be necessary to renew or change your coverage.

Special Enrollment

Qualifying events may allow you to enroll outside of Open Enrollment. These events include:

  • Having a child
  • Losing Health Insurance
  • Marriage/Divorce
  • Moving to a New State

If you qualify, you have a 60-day period to enroll.

Coverage Defined

You are considered to have health insurance coverage if you have:

  • Medicare Part A or C
  • Medicaid
  • CHIP
  • Any Job-Based Coverage
  • VA health coverage

Some other kinds of coverage qualify. Please ask your Navigator for more information.

Government Fees

If you fail to enroll in some kind of health coverage, you should expect to pay a fee on your income taxes.

2016 Rates:

$695 per adult / $347.50 per child OR 2.5% of your income (whichever is higher)

These fees will continue to increase annually with inflation.

Failing to obtain basic health insurance coverage will become increasingly expensive.

Call today to schedule your appointment and find out what your insurance options are.
