What to Know About 2018 Open Enrollment

Open enrollment allows you to enroll, re-enroll, or change your plan for health insurance. It’s important to be ready for the 2018 open enrollment period, which begins November 1, 2017. Here are a few ways to help make the enrollment process easier.


Be aware of any changes

The open enrollment period for 2018 has been shortened by quite a few days. Open enrollment is now from November 1, 2017, to December 15, 2017. Any plan you enroll in during these dates will begin on January 1, 2018. This means that the time period given to enroll in health insurance plans has been cut by nearly half. It’s a good idea to mark these dates on your calendar where you can see them so your coverage will start January 1. 2018.


Have a checklist ready

Checking off all of the necessary information you need to know before enrolling can make the enrollment process much easier. You’ll need to provide certain information about your household, like, your income, employer information, current coverage you may have, and who in your household needs to be covered by this new plan. You can always find checklists online that work as good templates to get you started.


Review your past application

If you already filled out forms for 2017 health insurance plans during the open enrollment back in 2016, it may be worth your time to review that information. Make sure everything is up to date and nothing has changed before re-enrolling for the 2018 period.


Know which plan you need

Choosing a health insurance plan is a big deal and can quickly become complicated. Researching which plan will work best for you ahead of time will make the process quicker and easier. Each plan differs, so it’s important to know which plan fits you and your family best.
