Health Insurance – take it or leave it

I know this is a sore topic for many and a very frustrating one for others. It is outside open enrollment right now. What does that mean? If you are on Medicare you may be familiar with this being the chance you have every year between October 15th and December 7th to change your prescription drug plan, also known as your part D. When people get older and their health changes, so do the medications they take. Not every company covers the same medications and have differing out of pocket costs based on how much you pay and the plan you pick. Enough of that topic. Keep that in mind if you have a family member on Medicare.

On to open enrollment for health insurance under the new laws! Open enrollment starts November 1st for a January 1st effective date. Enrollment for the year technically ends January 31, 2016. Future posts will cover topics such as special enrollment periods and other important topics and discussions that may help you decide what to purchase and protect.

Meanwhile, you can go to Healthcare.gov

Have a great weekend!
