The Open Enrollment Period is shorter than in past years, so it’s important to be ready. After Open Enrollment ends, you can’t enroll in or change health insurance plans, unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Plans joined during Open Enrollment start January 1st, 2018. Before you apply, you can preview 2018 health insurance plans and estimated prices based on your income. Here is the website to check them out: www.healthcare.gov/see-plans/
After you apply and submit your information, you will receive an eligibility notice on whether you qualify for subsidies. Then you can decide if you would like to enroll in a health insurance plan with or without subsidies. We recommend that you apply first to check them out then decide if you would like to enroll or not. So don’t miss out the opportunity!
