IMPORTANT: Preview of 2017 health insurance plans and rates coming soon
2017 health plans and prices will be available for preview at HealthCare.gov just before November 1st.
3 reasons why it’s important to update and compare health insurance plans for 2017
- New plan: This year, we may have new affordable plans available that fit your needs and budget. A health insurance plan for 2017 may be more suitable for your needs and budget. Especially if there has been or is expected to be a change in income or household.
- Exact savings: 2017 health care savings is based on projected 2017 income, not last year’s income. If you don’t update your information, your 2017 premium tax credits and other savings amounts may be incorrect. This means that your monthly premium payments may increase, or they may go unpaid when you file your tax returns.
- Best plan for you: You may be automatically enrolled in 2017, but this may not be the best way to get the right health insurance plan for you with good savings. If you do not renew or enroll in your plan by December 15, 2016, you may be automatically enrolled in the same or similar plan. Even if you want that plan, you’ll need to update your information to see all plans available in 2017. This he is available from November 1st.
