January 31 is just around the corner, which means the deadline for securing health insurance for 2017 is approaching quickly. If you miss the final deadline, you won’t be able to enroll in health insurance until the next Open Enrollment Period, unless you have a Qualifying Life Event before that time.
To secure coverage in 2017, take time to review all of your health care coverage options so you can find a plan that is best for you and your family. Keep in mind that if you were previously enrolled in a 2016 Marketplace health plan and did not choose a new plan, you will likely be automatically re-enrolled in your original plan. While this may seem like the hassle-free way to secure coverage, plans can change and you could end up saving more by evaluating your options and making changes if necessary.
Do you need help choosing a plan or enrolling in health insurance? If you need assistance, there are licensed agents who can help you pick a plan and enroll.
While the future of Obamacare remains uncertain, the law has not officially been repealed or changed yet, so it’s important to make sure you secure coverage for January, 31 2017.
