Open Enrollment Deadlines
For the upcoming 2017 plan year, Open Enrollment starts on November 1st, 2016. Unlike upcoming years, the annual enrollment period will end on January 31st, 2017. If you want coverage starting January 1st 2017, you are required to submit your enrollment paperwork by December 15th, 2016. With a small window of opportunity to enroll, it is crucial to assess your needs with a broker. The plan you choose during Open Enrollment will cover you and your family throughout the entire 2017 calendar year.
With changes to enrollment rules, it is difficult to switch or modify coverages mid-year after Open Enrollment ends. With a little foresight, applicants should evaluate what the 2017 calendar year will bring so their plan decision satisfies their needs.
