If you’re still not sure of which insurance plan, it may not be too late.
In NY state, the open Enrollment Period for 2018 Qualified Health Plan coverage is November 1, 2017 and end January 31, 2018. Since the federal government cut the 2018 enrollment period in half, New York stood up for consumers by using its authority to extend the deadline.
What does this mean for you?
To begin coverage Jan 1, enrollment ends Dec 15 (today)
But you can also begin coverage Feb 1, if you enroll by Jan 15
Otherwise, you can begin coverage March 1, if you enroll by Jan 31
I double checked on the NY Department of Health website.
And to be extra sure, I followed up with NY State of Health on Twitter. (Receipts below.)
