Open Enrollment Nov 1- Jan 31

Posted by Summer in Uncategorized | 0 comments


--Open enrollment will begin November 1, 2016 for the 2017 plan year.  There are quite a few plans canceled this year, so you might be forced to switch your plan.  Colorado has a new carrier in the individual market called Bright Health. I do have rates and plan designs available for this carrier now.  Some carriers will have significant rate increases of 30%, so you may need to switch your plan.  Rates will be higher this year. I am taking appointments for November currently, feel free to call me at 719-637-2500 to schedule. This time of year is incredibly busy for brokers-I am already working sixteen hour days. It is wise to get your plan changes done earlier in the season! I am a certified broker with Connect for Health Colorado,  the health care exchange for Colorado, and can help you determine if you qualify for a subsidy for health insurance this year.

  • Small businesses with fewer than fifty employees there is no mandate to cover, but such businesses may be eligible for tax credits.
