It is important to review your current health insurance plan each year BEFORE open enrollment because that is normally the only time to you’re allowed to make changes to your health plan. The only other time you can make changes is if you qualify for a special enrollment period. To qualify for special enrollment, you typically must have had a recent change in your circumstances, for example, gotten married, divorced, changed jobs, lost a job or aged out of your parents’ plan. Regardless of whether open enrollment is open or not, it’s wise to assess your health plan periodically so you can be aware of what changes you may need when the time comes.
Though health insurance is currently mandated by the federal government unless you want to pay a penalty at tax time, having the bare minimum required by law likely won’t be enough to ensure sufficient coverage. The Health Insurance Advisor will provide you with more information on open enrollment and tips for buying an individual health plan. Additionally, you’ll get information on how to transition your adult-aged children off your plan, if needed. Also, depending on your answers, you will receive information on dental and vision plans, as well.
