Open Enrollment For The Affordable Care Act Is Going On Now And Will End On January 15th
During this time you can enroll in a new health insurance plan or make changes to your current plan. New insurance companies have joined the marketplace which should lower costs for everyone.
In addition individuals and families can receive tax subsidies based on income and family size which will reduce the monthly cost of their health insurance. Outside of open enrollment, people can still buy health insurance if they met one or more of the following qualifying events:
- Marriage or divorce
- Loss of other coverage for reasons other than non-payment of premium
- Moving out of your current insurance carrier’s service area
- Expiration of COBRA coverage
- Turning 26 and losing your parents coverage
There are short term medical plans available that can be purchased for the time between open enrollment periods, however these plans are medically underwritten and will not cover pre-existing conditions.
