Insurance Advisors Help Consumers With Health Care Options During Open Enrollment

The open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act marketplace begins today, and changing regulations regarding the law’s execution may leave consumers with as many questions as ever about their health insurance options. Approximately 9 million Americans obtained health care coverage through the federal ACA exchange last year.
Fortunately, professional insurance advisors can assist those who are confused by the process or who simply would like help finding a plan best suited for their situation and budget. Advisors can often help those seeking coverage understand their options on the exchange and also explore coverage available off of the exchange that in some cases may better serve their needs.
Seema Verma, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told the New York Times that insurance agents and brokers are an important source of information on health plans for consumers.
Open enrollment on the ACA exchange for coverage beginning January 1 will continue through December 15.
Consumers in need of assistance can find a nearby advisor using NAIFA’s Find and Advisor Tool.
