We wanted to remind everyone that the last date to purchase Health Insurance for 2014 will be March 31st. After that date, the Open Enrollment will be closed for the rest of the year. A lot of people are under the impression that the deadline only applies to Marteplace, or Exchange, Plans, but the deadline will apply to all Individual Health Insurance. After March 31st, the only Plans that will be available from any carrier will be Short Term Plans. Short Term Plans do not cover pre-existing conditions, are not Guaranteed Issue, and do not qualify as Minimum Essential Coverage. So, if someone is covered by a Short Term Plan, they will still be subject to the Tax Penalty this year. If you or someone you know needs Health Insurance, please call 877-740-8683, as soon as possible, to explore your options. Even if you have a current plan, you will not be able to change to a new plan after the deadline. So if you think you think you may want to change plans before 2015, please visit www.freedomfreequote.com , to request a personalized quote. Don’t get caught without Health Insurance, or get stuck in a plan you aren’t happy with. You may even qualify for a subsidy to help with costs.
