We believe health insurance should not be hard to figure out so during the annual open enrollment (November 1 – December 15), we would be happy to help you understand your options. Open enrollment is the only time you can purchase individual health insurance or make a plan/carrier change unless you have another qualifying event during the year. See the plans we have to offer. You can apply online yourself or we are happy to process your application for you.
Outside of the individual market’s annual open enrollment period a short-term health insurance policy might be your best option, especially without a qualifying event. We offer affordable short term health plans with coverage options for 1 month and up to 364 days. These plans help bridge the gap during times of transition from one health plan to another and provide a lower cost alternative.
