Individual Market Reminders

Enrollment Deadline Approaching - Open enrollment for Individual Qualified Health Plans ends on January 31. Safety Net products and Essential Plan (now with dental and vision choices) continue to follow year-round enrollment options.

First Premium Payment – Please remind your customers to pay their first premium in a timely manner as this payment triggers the release of their health plan ID card, provides access to all of their benefits, as well as online tools and resources. Payment options depend on the type of plan they have:

  • Qualified Health Plan – Mail in, drop off at a health plan location, automatic withdrawal, or create and online account to make a payment
  • Essential Plan – Mail in, drop off at a health plan location, or create an online account to make a payment
  • Child Health Plus – Mail in, drop off at a health plan location, or automatic withdrawal

Tell Us What You Think – We’re looking for your feedback on our Individual Market Broker Tips, as well as other comments and suggestions you can provide. Please take a moment to complete our survey by January 31.
