Open enrollment for 2015 health care insurance coverage began this weekend (November 15th, 2014) and continues until February 15, 2015. Access Health CT notes that " you can also shop and compare costs, providers and health plan benefits, and select a different plan if that would better meet your needs." Go to their website by clicking here for more info.
For coverage to begin January 1, 2015, you must select your health plan by December 15th 2014, if you're new to the Marketplace, not eligible for auto-enrollment, or want to select a different plan than the one you had for 2014. Access Health CT adds that if " you select a plan after December 15, 2014, your coverage for that plan will not start until a later month. Remember, you will not be able to enroll in the Marketplace after February 15, 2015, unless you qualify for Special Enrollment, for example, you lose your existing health coverage; you relocate to Connecticut; or you experience certain other qualifying life events".
