Key Dates for Individual Market Open Enrollment

With the open enrollment period about to ramp up significantly, it will be important to be aware of several key items and dates for the individual market.

  1. Application submission must be completed by the 15th of a given month to allow member coverage starting the first of the next month for both on and off exchange.
  2. New York State reminder – Open enrollment begins November 1, for new Qualified Health Plan clients and the marketplace opens to existing members to make plan changes and update eligibility starting November 16th.
  3. From a sales perspective, there is an opportunity to provide a total solution to your employer groups for those employees that may not be eligible for group coverage (part time, temporary or seasonal workers)

“Broker Tips” is a document we created to answer questions you may have about the individual market. This valuable guide, provides key dates, renewal information, 2018 plan features, and Blue on Demand contact information for both pre-sales and post-sales questions.
