During this Open Enrollment Period (OEP), you can make changes to your plan for effective date January 1, 2017. This opportunity will end December 15, 2016. If by chance you are a small business owner and do not offer coverage to your employees, or if you work by yourself and do not have employees, but you are recognized as a small business owner, please call me immediately.
There are two markets, one market is individual, another market is small group. If you’re in the individual market for 2017 and own an ACA plan, you will see an approximate 42% increase in your existing premium. I do not want you to overlook this opportunity if indeed you are eligible to compare the small group market to what you may currently have. Don’t panic, call me. If you choose to stay in the individual market and you want to make a planned change, this is also THE time.
