Open Enrollment ended on December 15th, 2018. You will not be able to enroll in a Marketplace plan again for the 2019 plan year without a Special Enrollment Period. However, this does not mean you do not have options to get healthcare in 2019.
There are several options for people who missed the deadline. One of the main options is a short-term medical plan. These plans used to only last for three months. However, in August 2018 the rules changed and, in most states, the plans now last for up to 12 months. This is a great option for people who missed the Open Enrollment deadline.
There are other issues that may prohibit someone from buying a short-term medical plan. For those people, I recommend downloading our Free Healthcare Resources Guide. This is a brand new resource we are making available for free that tells you how you can save thousands of dollars on healthcare and prescription costs with or without insurance.
This is just one of the ways we are working to help you and your family save money on healthcare costs. Please give us a call today at 1-888-630-3826 to see how we can help you and your family this coming year on healthcare.
