 Open enrollment for 2016 health coverage is November 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017.  What does this mean for you?

“Open Enrollment” is a designated time each year when individuals can enroll in any health insurance plan they choose. To have health coverage for the next year you must enroll within this period. Miss the deadline and you generally can’t get coverage until the next Open Enrollment period for coverage that starts the following year - and you may be subject to pay a tax penalty. In 2016, the penalty for not having health insurance will rise to $695 or 2.5 percent of taxable income, whichever is higher
