Open Enrollment for Individual Health Insurance!

Braden Howell, New York Life, shared that the Open Enrollment dates for individual health insurance is November 1 - January 31.  You cannot get individual health insurance outside of that time period unless you have a documented qualifying life event.  Braden warned us to expect double-digit increases in the cost of health insurance this year; really, much more than a 10% increase!

Braden will start working with his clients on the new plans on November 8th, since everyone will be jumping in on the 1st and systems will be crazy!

Braden also reminded us about life insurance:  if you plan properly, you won't have a double-digit increase in health insurance!  You might get sick and need health insurance, but you will eventually die!
