240_F_84477543_9341A3uMUpuUuNS8ZxpC97IX7ayqXCBWIt’s the time of the year when  Health Marketplace Plans are Open For Renewal!

Renewing Your Health Plan

The end of the calendar year is almost here, which means it’s time to renew your health plan for coverage in 2016. The plan options and rates in your area change each year, and you may qualify for a different amount of premium assistance, especially if things like your income, family size and address have changed during the year. Renewal is a great time to update your information with Affordable CA and shop for new coverage. But first, you should check out what’s new for 2016.

What’s New for 2016

Adult dental benefits are now available through family dental plans. Subsidies are not available to help pay for adult dental benefits but the prices are very good.

New health plans are also available in select areas of the state. Call one of our certified agents  to learn what plans are available in your area.

How to Renew with Affordable CA

You have many options to renew your health plan and here are the main ones to note:

  1. Do nothing and be automatically renewed in the same health plan and coverage(the rates or plan details may change).
  2. Make changes to your current coverage or switch health plans.

If you want to keep your same health plan and coverage, most plans will automatically renew. If you do nothing, you will be automatically renewed. However, if you receive money to help pay for your insurance through a tax credit, your tax credits are applied to your 2016 coverage.  Our agents can help you see if you qualify for subsidies for the upcoming year. If you want to drop your employers plan for your own plan, this is a great time to compare rates and you will be pleasantly surprised how much money you might be able to save.

Items to have ready for Enrollment/Renewal:

  • Information about Household- who needs coverage
  • Home address or mailing address for everyone applying for coverage
  • Information about everyone applying for coverage
  • Social security numbers
  • Document information for legal immigrants
  • Information on how you file your taxes
