Here to kickoff the 2016 open enrollment period which will run from November 1, 2015 to January 31, 2016.
It is important to remember that during the open enrollment period all rules regarding SEP (special election period) enrollment dates for loss of employer coverage are off of the tablle. Than means no retroactive start dates on the Covered California health exchange.
Remember during open enrollment you may sign up for any available health insurance plan either off- or on-exchange with no medical underwriting.
My site features live free instant quotes and online applications for off-exchange subscribers.
For Covered California exchange subscribers, I can take your information over the phone and set up your account on Covered CA for you. You would need to log in with a special code I would provide upon submission of the application and select your plan/pay the initial premium via Covered CA.
