What You Need to Know About Your Health Benefits
And what does fall bring? Health insurance events:
You’ve got Open Enrollment (Nov 1-Dec 15) for those under 65 on a Marketplace plan; Annual Enrollment Medicare beneficiaries (Oct 15-Dec 7); and most employer sponsored health insurance renews in the upcoming months. All these events allow you to review and often change your insurance coverage. But how do you know if it is worth the time, effort, blood, sweat and tears to switch coverage?
A couple months before your renewal or enrollment period you will receive information on the upcoming changes. I know you’d probably rather read a washing machine user manual than information on your insurance coverage, but it really is critical. So much can change, and it’s import to know ahead of time how you will be impacted.
