–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.
