Open enrollment for health care is ending soon! Have you signed up or renewed your coverage yet?
Enrollment for the Affordable Care Act Marketplace is open until December 15th!
Open enrollment is an important time — even for those who have enrolled before. Utahns should reassess their options to make sure they have a plan that’s right for them. As Utah’s market grows, there is more variety. This means that Utahns have more options to figure out what is the best fit for their budget, including $0 premiums and $0 deductibles for many. Some plans are also offering no-deductible office visits and other offerings that provide additional flexibility.
A reminder: the Affordable Care Act offers a wide range of FREE preventative care services
. That includes things like immunizations, colonoscopies, mammograms, and birth control. This is an incredibly important part of health care and one of the benefits of Marketplace coverage!
Be sure to enroll, renew and spread the word to others today!
