Be Open During Enrollment Season!

It’s open enrollment season again—the time when you enroll (or re-enroll) in a health coverage plan for the coming year.  Although open enrollment season is generally from October through December, this time frame varies by plan sponsor. With so many different types of plans, which choice is the best one for you? We'd love to tell you, but only you know the answer. After all, one plan does not fit all.

FAIR Health’s Consumer Tools

In case you missed it, FAIR Health’s consumer cost lookup tools were highlighted recently on network television as an effective way to estimate medical and dental care costs.  View the clips below:
Be Choosy!
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health coverage has become a requirement; everyone above a certain income level must have health insurance or pay a penalty, with some exceptions.  That means that over the next few months, many consumers will be enrolling in a health coverage plan for 2016.  It’s important to remember that there are different options for coverage—the best plan for your neighbor might not work for you.  Here is how you can be choosy when it comes to picking the plan that suits you and your family best! 

The Right Fit?

Understanding narrow provider networks 

Today, many insurers—and plan sponsors, like employers—offer plans with “narrow” networks.  These plans have a lower monthly premium, but as a trade-off, give you a more limited choice of providers.  If you have one of these plans, it’s important to know which providers are in your network to avoid high out-of-pocket costs.
