What does open enrollment mean? Does it have anything to do with Deer season?
Open enrollment is a period of time each year that you can or have to sign up for new health insurance benefits (if you don’t already have them) or change existing benefits. It has a lot to do with how old you are.
If you are over the age of 65, your open enrollment for 2015 is October 15, 2014 to December 7, 2014. If you are enrolled in Medicare and a Medicare advantage plan (Part C) or have a prescription-drug plan (Part D) you can change your benefits or change carriers during this time.
If you have a Medicare supplement, you are not affected by this open-enrollment period. Many, however, that are on a Medicare Supplement carry a separate prescription-drug plan (Part D). A Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) can be changed during this open-enrollment period. Medicare Supplements can be changed anytime if meet health underwriting qualifications.
If you are under the age of 65 and not on Medicare, open enrollment for Kentucky kynect or Healthcare.gov runs from November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. If you do not have healthcare insurance you can sign up for coverage between those dates. There are fines for not having health insurance.
