Nov. 2 - 2019 Open Enrollment Ends Dec. 15

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

November 2, 2018 - Georgians can now sign up for health coverage at HealthCare.gov for the 2019 calendar year. The sixth Open Enrollment period runs through Dec. 15. 

“The number one thing people need to know is that if you need health coverage, now is the time to sign up,” said Joshua Peck, co-founder of Get America Covered.  “Getting covered is easy, and plans are likely a lot more affordable than people think. Last year, 8 out of 10 people found plans for less than $75 thanks to financial help. These are plans that normally cost people hundreds of dollars but because of financial help become much more affordable. The catch: you have to sign up before December 15.”

In Georgia, 8 out 10 people can find a plan for $75 or less this year at HealthCare.gov thanks to financial help that lowers their monthly premiums.     

Despite the affordable coverage options available and strong consumer demand for quality, comprehensive coverage, the current administration continues to undermine enrollment and has significantly reduced the outreach efforts that give people the basic information they need to sign up for health coverage. 

“Get America Covered is returning for a second year because the administration is once again not doing their job,” said Peck. “People need the facts. So that’s what we’re going to do, make sure that people have the basic information they need to sign up for coverage.”

Since last year’s Open Enrollment, the administration has taken significant actions to undermine the marketplaces. Nevertheless, the marketplaces remain resilient, with nearly 12 million people having signed up last year and even more affordable coverage options to choose from this year.
