Learn About Your Options In Obtaining
Health Insurance After Open Enrollment
Independent healthcare insurance
broker Corey Jennings has launched
an expanded range of services to
help individuals and families in
Florida obtain health insurance even
after the open enrollment period.
According to Corey, it's
never too late for anyone to
get healthcare coverage.
Florida's open enrollment
period ended on
December 15, 2020.
Generally, individuals who
missed the deadline may no
longer be eligible to obtain
healthcare insurance until the
following open enrollment.
However, there are exceptions that
may qualify you for a special
enrollment period. Low income
individuals or families may also opt
for Medicaid or CHIP, which are not
subject to the open enrollment policy.
For clients who do not qualify for the
special enrollment period, Medicaid,
or CHIP, Corey can recommend
various options, including enrolling in
a private plan that is not regulated by
the Affordable Care Act.
For healthy individuals who have no
serious health conditions and only
need an annual checkup, certain
private plans are significantly more
affordable and can save the
policyholder hundreds of dollars per
According to Corey, "Healthy people pay so
much simply because they often choose plans
meant for sick people from healthcare.gov."
Private plans that are not regulated by ACA
include short term plans, limited benefits plans,
dental or vision plans, illness-specific plans,
and medical discount plans.
Corey says comparing private
plans to determine which is the
right one can get very confusing
and this is why he designed his
services to simplify the process.
For free, Corey provides clients
with all their options based on
their budgets and
circumstances, as well as
guidance on choosing the plan
that's right for them.
