Washington Healthplanfinder Qualified Health Plan customers receive their renewal notices in late October. These notices provide important information for the upcoming renewal period that starts November 1st. We’ve posted some helpful renewal tips on wahbexchange.org/renew.
Some plans are new, some prices have changed and tax credit amounts have changed, too.
Here are important factors to consider during renewal:
- Cost: If you want to make sure you have the best priced plan in your area, you might want to shop for new coverage options on Washington Healthplanfinder. New plan options mean new, lower prices.
- Coverage: If you want to take advantage of new benefit packages, or adjust the benefits you have now, you might want to check out new coverage options in your area. More health plans available means more options to choose from to find coverage that suits your needs. This includes checking whether a health care provider or clinic that you visit frequently is covered.
- Convenience: If you are happy with your current plan, your plan (or a plan very similar) is offered next year, and your renewal letter says you are eligible to automatically renew your coverage, then you’re done! Just keep paying your monthly premiums and you will auto-renew for coverage that begins January 1st.
You can shop and compare 2018 coverage options starting November 1 at www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
Make sure to finalize your coverage by December 15th for coverage that starts January 1st!
Open Enrollment ends January 15 for coverage dates beginning on Feb. 1.
