December 15th, Last Call For January 1st Health Coverage

Each year, in general, December 15th is your last chance to get health coverage during open enrollment. This means updating info, shopping for plans, and re-enrolling must all be done no later than December 15th.

It’s nothing short of a bad idea to ignore something as important as your health insurance for the whole of next year. Do yourself a favor and double check your health insurance. Many insurers won’t offer an auto-renew option and others will simply enroll you in a similar plan. Either way, if you want choice, then you want to make sure everything is in place for December 15th each year.

Last year those who shopped around saved more, be one of those people!

Notes on extensions: Dates are subject to change each year, the federal government may extend the deadline for all states, and some states may extend the deadline (and generally deadlines can differ by state).
