 October 1, 2018 thru January 15, 2019 to make changes only on existing Covered CA Plans

October 15, 2018 thru January 15, 2019 to enroll in a brand new plan

Open enrollment for health insurance is upon us once more. The period for enrollment this year for Covered California is October 1, 2018 – January 15, 2019. Beyond these dates, you must have a qualifying event to obtain new coverage. Now is the time to review your policy and determine if any amendments are needed. Do you need to add or remove dependents? Are your doctors in-network? Are you satisfied with your current provider?

If you are currently on an ACA Covered CA plan and are receiving a subsidy, you’ll need to update your estimated income at this time, as well. Failure to report income changes may affect your premium assistance and could ultimately impact your 2019 taxes if incorrect. Note: changes made for a January 1, 2019 effective date must be made no later than December 15, 2018.

Don’t wait until the last minute! If you’re unhappy with your current provider, let us know. We would be happy to quote you with another carrier.
