Open enrollment period for 2017 health insurance plans is scheduled to begin on November 1,/2016 and ends January 31/2017.
If you are doing your own search for health insurance, it’s important that you pay attention to changes in prices, are your doctors still in the network, is your plan from previous year available on marketplace.
During open enrollment you cannot be turned down for major medical coverage for not having certain qualifying life events.
After open enrollment period you can generally only enroll in a major medical plan when you experience a qualifying life event for example a marriage, divorce, new baby, adoption, permanent move, loss of other coverage, etc.
If you don’t have health insurance plan you could potentially face tax penalties on your federal tax return for 2017.
