  13,000+ health plans from 180+ carriers.

2017 ACA Open Enrollment begins on November 1, 2016 and ends on January 31, 2017. Health  plans purchased before December 17, 2016 will begin covering you on January 1, 2017. Health plans purchased after Dec 17, 2016 will begin covering you on Feb 1 2017. Health plans purchased after January 15, 2017 will begin covering you on March 1, 2017. The last day to apply for 2017 individual health insurance coverage is January 31, 2017. This year will be the most challenging open enrollment period of all. This is true because Aetna, Coventry, United Healthcare and Harken Health have all exited the Obamacare exchange. This means that you can no longer obtain a federal subsidy to help you pay for these carrier’s health plans even if your income is low enough to qualify. Thankfully, the largest health insurer in Illinois is still offering subsidized plans on the exchange and non-subsidized plans off the exchange. In fact, they still offer plans that include a “Broad PPO” with access to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, University of Chicago Medical Center, Rush University Medical Center and the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. Call us directly at (630) 674-1551 to find out more. Click here to contact us with questions.
