Individual Health Insurance OPEN ENROLLMENT STARTS November 15th this year.
- You can choose to keep your current plan as long as the company offers to renew it and you are satisfied with the new price (most are increasing).
- You can choose a different plan with the same company if you have been happy with their network (we have one company that has met 95% of our clients Doctor needs in California *).
- You can choose to change to a different company and plan and we can help!
We have been watching for the renewal rates and any changes the companies may be making to your current plan for 2015. While there are a few plans with slight decreases, the majority of the rates are increasing 4% or more. Some plans are actually being modified in some cases.
We have populated our new rating tool with all of our current customers and as soon as the rates/plans are released next week by Anthem, Assurant *, Blue Shield, and Kaiser Permanente, we will be sending each of our customers a personalized detailed price/plan comparison.
We are ready to meet with you beginning November 15th. We will be scheduling appointments for Saturday November 15th and Sunday November 16th to be sure that our current customers are first in line. Since much of the work can be done on-line, we anticipate each appointment to take from 30 minutes to an hour (websites permitting).
In order to obtain a plan that is effective January 1, 2015 you must complete an application before December 15th, 2014. Call us to schedule an appointment or with any questions you may have.
