4 Ways to Prepare for Open Enrollment


Apply by December 15th for your 2020 health coverage to be effective by January 1, 2020.

It is that time of the year again, Open Enrollment for Individual Health Insurance. During this time of year you can renew, update and compare your current health insurance plan.

Whether applying for the first time of renewing your coverage, it is a good idea to gather essential information for your application.

Information to have available for your application: 
  1. Social security numbers, date of birth for you and whoever will be on your plan.
  2. Your estimated gross household income for 2020.
  3. An understanding of plan for your medical needs for the year, including a list of current medications.
  4. The names of any doctors you would like to have in your network.
