4 Ways to do if you miss open enrollment
1) CHECK DATES-Whether you are signing up with the insurance company directly with any subsides or signing up with the health insurance marketplace(aka Obamacare) makes a difference.
-For 2020 ON Marketplace the effective date is Nov 1 2019 - Dec. 15th 20219
-OFF Marketplace individuals actually start Oct 1st -Dec 31st
2) NOT ALL SHORT TERM PLANS ARE CREATED EQUAL
United healthcare and National General are both great options for health insurance.
-United health care came out with a copay plan that allows members to have traditional copays 4 times a year and provide some benefits towards preventative care services when you need your annual check-ups. You can also keep this plan for 3 years at a time if needed. (Click Here to Get a Quote)

Please make sure you reach out to one of our agents at Freeinsuranceguru@gmail.com if you need assistance with this. 3)SEP ME !
