We are almost one month into Open Enrollment for individual health insurance! In the first two weeks, Washington’s HealthPlanFinder reported a 58% increase in enrollments over the same time period last year. To encourage enrollment, HealthPlanFinder has shopping tips, including the new Smart PlanFinder tool, to help consumers select a plan. There is also a new mobile app, where people can view coverage info, find in-person help and upload documents straight from their phone. The federal marketplace (the 39 states served by HealthCare.gov) is also trending significantly ahead of 2017 in the first two weeks of open enrollment. While Washington’s Open Enrollment extends to January 15, the last day to purchase coverage for January or to purchase coverage outside of the Exchange is December 15.
