If you are one of the many Americans who waited… and waited… and waited on hold with the Federal Marketplace trying your best to enroll in health insurance by the December 15th deadline, but were still unable to complete the process, we can help! Although the deadline has passed for a January 1st effective date, Open Enrollment is still happening and you can be enrolled in a Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina health plan starting February 1st in just minutes! We offer a simple, straight-forward, and short application you can do online or over the phone with one of our experienced and professional agents and we are happy to help you choose a plan, submit an application and assist you through enrolllment.
Keep in mind that under the law of the Affordable Care Act, you will not incur a tax penalty for 2016 so long as you are not uninsured for three or more months of the year. This means you still have time to make sure you are covered and avoid paying unnecessary penalties at tax time. Also, don’t forget the tax penalty for 2016 has increased substantially; however, if you submit an application by January 15th, your coverage can begin as early as February 1st.
Let’s face it, deadlines are easy to miss and especially when they fall right in the middle of the holiday rush. Fortunately, Open Enrollment is not over and you still have time to obtain the coverage you need for you and your family. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina is committed to keeping the residents of North Carolina insured and offers a variety of plans that will fit your family’s needs and budget.
Don’t let another year go by without the peace of mind that comes from having the health insurance you need!
