Review Your Health Coverage, Indian Country!

It is critical that you take the time to review and understand your current health care coverage and what it means for the coming year.

The Open Enrollment period for the healthcare marketplace starts next Tuesday, the 1st of November and continues until January 31st 2017. Members of a federally recognized Tribe and Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act Shareholders can enroll in Marketplace coverage any time of the year. For American Indians and Alaska Natives who sign up through the Marketplace, there is no limited enrollment period and AI/ANs are able to change plans as often as once a month. However, we still strongly encourage individuals to consider the open enrollment period as the ideal time for evaluating current coverage, comparing the health coverage options available, and making adjustments as needed.

Additionally, note December 15th, 2016 as an important date in the open enrollment timeline. If you are making changes to your current coverage, switching plans, or enrolling in coverage you must make these changes before December 15th to have them become effective by January 1ST!

Important Dates on the Marketplace:

  • November 1, 2016: Open Enrollment starts – first day you can enroll, re-enroll, or change a 2017 insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2017.
  • December 15, 2016: Last day to enroll in or change plans for coverage to start January 1, 2017.
  • January 1, 2017: 2017 coverage starts for those who enroll or change plans by December 15.
  • January 31, 2017: Last day to enroll in or change a 2017 health plan. After this date, you can enroll or change plans monthly.
