As the year comes to a close, MSAA would like to remind everyone about two important upcoming deadlines. The open enrollment period for Medicare and the Health Insurance Marketplace is quickly coming to an end.
Open enrollment for 2020 Medicare ends on December 7th for insurance coverage that begins on January 1, 2020. To review your current Medicare coverage, make changes, or re-enroll, visit medicare.gov.
Health Insurance Marketplace
Open enrollment for private insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Marketplace ends on December 15th for insurance coverage that begins on January 1, 2020. If you don’t enroll by this deadline, you can’t enroll in a plan for the rest of 2020 unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
