2018 Open Enrollment Period is November 1, 2017 through December 15, 2017. This is the only time you can apply for coverage or change plans for 2018 unless you have a Qualifying Special Event.

Shopping for health insurance for individual and families can be as easy as 1 – 2 – 3 !


Step 1:

Is it possible that I may qualify for a government advanced tax credit/subsidy to offset the cost of my monthly health insurance premium?

Two questions must be answered:

1. Does my employer offer a health insurance plan to me and is it deemed affordable (employee doesn’t pay more than 9.5% of their income towards coverage for a single person rate)?

  1. No – Then I may qualify for the tax credit Proceed to step 2
  2. Yes – Then I am not eligible for a tax credit. But I can still purchase individual/family coverage without a subsidy. Proceed to step 3

Step 2:

2. Is my Household income below the threshold for a tax credit?

Number of People in Family Annual Household Income
1 $47,080
2 $63,720
3 $80,360
4 $97,000

Or you can utilize this tool to determine if you may qualify:

Shopping Tips

When shopping for plans pay particular attention to the following plan options:

Plan Type – PPO / HMO / POS – this option dictates what flexibility you have in selecting doctors and hospital

Network – This tells you what doctors and hospitals will be considered “In-Network” and eligible for lower copays and deductibles.

Plan Description – H.S.A./ H.R.A./ Traditional Plan – this option dictates how deductibles and copays will be facilitated

Deductibles – this typically is the dollars you will pay out of pocket first before coverage kicks in.

Copays – some expenses like prescriptions, doctors visits, urgent care, etc will have separate copays that are paid either before or after deductibles.

Out of Pocket Maximum – this is the most you can expect to pay out of your pocket for expenses during the course of the plan year.

Review your plan options and determine a budget and feel free to call our office at any time and our team of agents will help you compare plans and make a choice that fits your needs.
