Open enrollment dates set for 2020 health plans

Depending on the type of health coverage you need, the enrollment period for starting new plans, making changes to existing plans, or adding participants will vary:

• Individual health plans: New plans such as MyBlue or subsidized health plans purchased through MDA Insurance via the online Marketplace, can be started Nov. 1 through Dec. 15 for a Jan. 1 effective date. It is the only time you can start a new individual plan unless you experience a qualifying event.

2019 Health Care Seminar dates announced

Lately, it seems health insurance is always changing. It can be challenging to keep up with the developments from one year to the next. Join us for a three-hour seminar that will keep you up-to-date on the changes to the Affordable Care Act and other legislative developments or presidential executive orders affecting health care. The seminar will also provide updates on the MDA Health Plan and the individual and small group plans offered by commercial carriers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. The seminar is designed to help you choose the best health plan for you, your family, or your practice for the 2020 plan year.
