How do I apply during the Annual Open Enrollment Period for an Individual Affordable Care Act (marketplace) health insurance plan?

The annual Open Enrollment Period for 2022 runs from November 1, 2021 through January 15, 2022. This normally runs until December 15th each year, but has been extended for 2022.  This is the only timeframe provided to apply for a 2022 ACA health insurance plan unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a Qualifying Life Event (QLE). 

Outside of open enrollment, you can only enroll in new coverage if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) due to a Quallifying Life Event (QLE) such as birth/adoption of a child, marriage/divorce, involuntary loss of individual/employer health insurance or cobra benefits, dependent turning age 26, a loss of or change in income, etc.

Please contact our office to determine if you qualify for a SEP.

What is Pediatric Dental? Do I have to elect it or can I waive it?

This is an Essential Health Benefit that must be covered under Affordable Care Act health plans for children under the age of 19.  Some carriers have this benefit embedded into their medical benefits, while others have the option to purchase or decline separately. If you choose to waive this benefit without having compliant Pediatric Dental coverage, you may be subject to a penalty.
