Healthcare Marketplace Open Enrollment in NC

Open Enrollment in the Healthcare Marketplace is the time when individuals in North Carolina, and the rest of the country, can sign up for health insurance plans. For 2017, the open enrollment period starts from November 1st, 2016 and runs through January 31st, 2017.

Things are a little different this year because there will be only two providers participating in Open Enrollment, in North Carolina this year. The two providers will be Blue Cross Blue Shield NC (BCBSNC) and Cigna. Also, if you are currently on a Healthcare Marketplace plan that will not be participating in the Healthcare Marketplace in North Carolina, you will be mapped over, or migrated, to a new plan.

What Does This Health Insurance Plan Migration Mean Exactly?

At Independent Benefit Advisors, we understand that you want to know exactly what being migrated to a new plan might mean for you. Because no two health insurance plans are the same, the general idea is that you should be mapped to something comparable that is offered by BCBSNC or Cigna. Unfortunately, comparable and perfect don’t always mean the same thing. You could potentially be mapped to a healthcare plan that doesn’t quite fit your needs.

If you are taking part in the Healthcare Marketplace and you are not already on a Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina or Cigna plan, give us a call at 919-303-9690 or contact us online. At Independent Benefit Advisors, our aim is to make sure that you and your family have the health coverage you need.

Individual Healthcare Plans During Open Enrollment

You can only enroll in the Market Place for health insurance during the Open Enrollment period. The only exception to this occurs when you have a major change in your life (such as marriage or the loss of a job). If you don’t have health coverage you may be subject to tax penalties at the end of the year.

Don’t leave things to chance, get in touch with the experts at Independent Benefit Advisors, we’ll be able to find the most affordable healthcare options, with the right amount of coverage for you.
