Health insurance enrollment ends Dec. 15

December 2019 Posted in Other

A majority of Oregonians may not realize they only have until Dec. 15 to enroll for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act or go without health insurance
for 2020.

This year, coverage is more affordable. According to a new Health and Human Services report, people can find cheaper plans this year than in years past. For the last two years, over 4 million uninsured people have been eligible for plans with $0 monthly premiums thanks to
financial help.

Here are five vital facts Oregonians need to remember when signing up for coverage at HealthCare.gov:

1. Sign up by Dec. 15. Open Enrollment started Nov. 1, but you must take action by Dec. 15, no matter if this is your first time getting covered or if you are returning to shop and save.

2. Coverage could be cheaper than you think. Last year, 9 in 10 people qualified for financial help to make their monthly premiums more affordable. In fact, 2 out of 3 HealthCare.gov customers can find a plan for $10 a month or less this year.

3. If you shop you can save. If you had coverage through HealthCare.gov for 2019, you should go back to the site to update your information and compare your options for 2020. Every year, plans and prices change, you could save money by switching to a new plan that still meets your needs.

4. Health insurance protects you from the unexpected. Accidents happen and people get sick.

5. Free help is available. If you have questions about signing up or want to talk through your options with a trained professional, free help is just a call or click away. Call 1-800-318-2596, visit localhelp.healthcare.gov or make a
one-on-one appointment now.
