Enrollment Dates

Remember to check this year’s enrollment dates for health insurance. Most years, enrollment opens in November and ends during the middle of December. So, don’t get caught procrastinating! Be sure to select a plan that works best for you before it’s too late. Of course, enrollment dates can vary depending on your employer. Either way, take this opportunity to reflect on how your health and wellbeing have changed within this past year. From there, decide on which healthcare plan will be most beneficial going forward.

Gaps in Your Health Insurance

Nowadays, health insurance will only get you so far. Within the last 10 years, many dangerous gaps have opened up in American health plans.1 One of the biggest gaps leaves you exposed to excessive emergency transport bills. Depending on which emergency medical transportation provider picks you up, where you get picked up, and why you get picked up, you have a 50% chance of being left with a majority of the bill.2 Of course, nobody can predict when they will need a ground ambulance or helicopter medical transport. But, accidents can happen, and you’re not going to be happy when you are stuck with a big bill. This risk can only be addressed by supplemental coverage.
