   ACA Open Enrollment Period Starts November 1st

Open enrollment for the 2019 individual health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) starts Thursday, November 1, but consumers can begin comparing plan options now. Once again, the Insurance Department is providing a Consumers’ Checkbook, which allows consumers to view plan options, estimate monthly premiums and total annual out-of-pocket costs for each plan, and learn how to buy a plan. Even if you like your current plan, it’s important that you shop around because there are more options at competitive costs on the market. Also, these new options can change the financial assistance available. The Consumers’ Checkbook is available now through open enrollment, which runs Nov. 1 to Dec. 15. For more information about Open Enrollment, visit the "Open Enrollment Resource" page.
