Re-enroll in ObamaCare Before December 15, 2015

obamacare open enrollment 2016 deadline

Everyone with a health plan needs to re-enroll in the same plan or a new plan by Dec 15, 2015 and verify their cost assistance for 2016.

Some plans offer auto-renewal with the same or similar plan and cost assistance, but not all.

Whether you have a Marketplace plan or not, you’ll want to re-enroll and ensure coverage is in place for 2016.

For most people income will change, if if only slightly this year. If your income changes make sure to update the Marketplace before Dec 15 to ensure your cost assistance is right when your new plan starts on January 1st, 2016.

Last year people missed the re-enroll deadline and that created a lot of last minute plan drops and loss of coverage in January. Do yourself a favor and sign into your Marketplace account before it’s too late.
