Individual Market – Key Dates and Broker Tips

With the open enrollment period about to ramp-up significantly for the Individual Market, it will be important to be aware of several key items and changes:

  • Application submission must be completed by the 15th of a given month to allow member coverage starting the 1st of the next month for both on and off exchange.
  • New York State reminder – Open enrollment begins November 1st for new Qualified Health Plan (QHP) clients and November 16th for QHP renewals.
  • From a sales perspective, there is opportunity to provide a total solution to your employer groups for those employees that may not be eligible for group coverage (part time, temps)

We have published a “Broker Tips” document to assist all of our Brokers with answers to questions they may have with the individual market. This valuable guide provides our Brokers with key dates, renewal information, new Essential Plan’s dental and vision options and contact information for both pre-sales and post sales questions.
