Earlier this week, Moda Health notified the Washington Health Benefit Exchange that they will not offer health plans during the Open Enrollment Period for 2016 coverage.
Customers currently enrolled in a Moda health plan will have coverage through their 2015 contract. For most individual/family customers this means their coverage will end Dec. 31, 2015. Washington Healthplanfinder Business customers enrolled in a Moda health plan will have coverage through their 12-month contract period based on the effectuated date.
These customers will not be able to renew their Moda coverage from 2015 to 2016. We will be reaching out to customers about this change and starting next week during Open Enrollment, they will have the opportunity to choose a new health plan. We are working closely with our partners at the Insurance Commissioner’s Office to ensure that individual/family and small business customers who are currently covered by Moda will have the help they need through this transition.
Health plans change year-to-year and for 2016, there are over 140 options in Washington Healthplanfinder and over 30 options in Washington Healthplanfinder Business for customers to choose from. All health plans offered through Washington Healthplanfinder meet strict benefit and quality standards. More information is available at www.wahbexchange.org/new-customers/coverage-basics/health-plans-overview.
The Open Enrollment period for individual/family customers is Nov. 1, 2015 to Jan. 31, 2016. Customers need to select a plan by Dec. 23, 2015 for Jan. 1, 2016 coverage. Customer Support is available and ready to help. Customers who need help enrolling may locate an insurance broker or navigator by zip code through the Customer Support link on www.wahealthplanfinder.org. The Customer Support Center at 1-855-WAFINDER (1-855-923-4633) is available from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday during Open Enrollment.
