What does this mean to you? It is the only time of year that an individual may change carriers and plan designs unless a person qualifies for a Special Enrollment Period during the year.
In advance of the Open Enrollment period, the Marketplace will send a Marketplace Open Enrollment Notice to current 2015 enrollees who do not have a future termination transaction on file. This notice describes the annual redetermination and re-enrollment process, discusses the requirement to report to the Marketplace changes to information that affect eligibility, and reminds consumers of key dates and instructions for ensuring coverage that will be effective January 1 of the following year.
During the Open Enrollment period, current enrollees should contact the Marketplace and update their eligibility information to ensure they receive the accurate amount of financial assistance and either select the same QHP (if available) or select a new plan. Enrollees who proactively update their application information will receive an updated eligibility determination. In order for this updated eligibility determination to be sent to the issuer for the enrollee’s selected QHP (qualified health plan), the enrollee MUST confirm plan selection in either the same plan or a new plan. If the enrollee does not make this active selection, the Marketplace will establish the enrollees’ eligibility for financial assistance using rules outlined.
Consumers who DO NOT contact the Marketplace to update their eligibility information and select a plan by the deadline to select coverage effective January 1 of the following year are automatically re-enrolled into coverage for the following year. For plan year 2016, enrollees who do not contact the Marketplace to obtain an updated eligibility determination and select a plan by December 15, 2015 (the last day on which a plan selection may be made for coverage effective January 1, 2016) will still be able to obtain an updated eligibility determination and select a plan for prospective coverage through the end of the Open Enrollment period on January 31, 2016.
