How to Get Health Insurance During Open Enrollment in South Florida
Health Insurance in Florida is required by law and is also your safety net in times of unexpected illness or injury. It keeps medical costs down and prevents you from scrambling in times of crisis. It even provides preventative care such as checkups, vaccines and screenings.
Open enrollment is upon us. This means we have a period of time during which health insurance companies or HMO’s are legally required to accept applicants without regard to health history, according to Healthcare.gov. Open enrollment begins November 1, 2016 and ends January 31, 2017.
Be aware that health insurance plans you receive from your employer may have their own open enrollment. Outside of open enrollment you can enroll in an insurance plan if you qualified for “Special Enrollment Period Eligibility,” according to Healthcare.gov. This is determined based on specific life events such as marriage, birth of a new baby, or losing other health coverage to name a few. Open enrollment for Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is year round.
