Want more information about Open Enrollment? Below, we answer important Open Enrollment questions to get you up to speed on all things health insurance.


What do I need to do before I call to enroll in a plan?

Before you call to enroll in a plan, it’s a good idea to have your family’s personal information available and ready, including social security numbers, birth dates, and immigration papers, if necessary. In addition, you’ll need to provide your employer information and a tax return from last year.


Can I afford a health insurance plan in 2018?

It’s important to remember there are various plan options to choose from. If you want to avoid the tax penalty, enrolling in a major medical plan that covers the 10 essential health benefits and pre-existing conditions could be your most affordable option. However, if you need temporary coverage or want help affording health care costs, a short-term plan or health benefit insurance might be right for you.
