About Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is CLOSED… But there are still options.

Open Enrollment is the time of year when you can purchase or adjust your health insurance plan for the coming year. This year’s window is from November 1 – January 15, 2024. If you miss it, you might have to wait until next year.

Exceptions include Qualifying Life Events, such as: losing existing healthcare from a job or COBRA, aging out of your parents’ health plan, getting married/divorced, having a child, or moving to a different state or region.

If you’re in NY, you may qualify for a plan outside of the Open Enrollment period; Book a one on one consultation with a health insurance expert to learn if you qualify.

If traditional health insurance doesn’t work for you, check out our other options to get freelance group coverage through Opolis or low-cost access to medical care (telehealth + dental, vision, & Rx discounts) through Galileo Medical.
