Important Health Insurance Marketplace Updates
The 2015 open enrollment period for marketplace health insurance plans is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. Enroll now! Coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2015.
Open Enrollment affects both individuals without health care coverage and individuals who are already enrolled in a 2014 Marketplace plan.
Individuals who are already enrolled in a 2014 Marketplace plan can either renew their current plan or choose a new health plan. Many people chose to automatically renew their coverage, but this doesn’t mean they should do nothing!
Everyone with a current Marketplace plan - even those who chose the automatic renewal option - should return to the Marketplace (healthcare.gov) in order to update their income information, check to see if their plan has changed, or consider whether a different plan would be a better option for the coming year. Clients who are enrolled in a plan for 2014 can change plans even if they chose to automatically renew their coverage, and even after they've been automatically enrolled.

*Outside of Open Enrollment, individuals can buy coverage through the Marketplace only if they qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Clients who were without coverage in 2014 may still be able to get 2014 coverage if they qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
