Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment is from November 15, 2014 through February 15, 2015. All consumers shopping for health insurance coverage for 2015 through the Health Insurance Marketplace — even those who currently have coverage through the Marketplace — should enroll or re-enroll between during open enrollment in order to have coverage effective on Jan. 1, 2015.
Consumers can visit HealthCare.gov to review detailed information about each health insurance plan offered in their area before applying. With more issuers offering coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace this year, the majority of consumers will find more affordable options for themselves and their families. By answering a few simple questions, such as location and family size, consumers will be able to compare plans and get an estimate on how much financial assistance they may qualify for when shopping for coverage, without needing to submit an application.
This year there are even more plans on the market than last year. Visit HealthCare.gov to review and compare health plan options and find out if you are eligible for financial assistance, which can help pay monthly premiums and reduce out-of-pocket costs when receiving services. Consumers can find local help at: Localhelp.healthcare.gov or call the Federally-facilitated Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. TTY users should call 1-855- 889-4325.
