Preparing for 2015 Open Enrollment

Getting prepared for open enrollment 2015 has been a major challenge. Total Benefit Solutions is dedicated to serving all of our clients throughout this second annual open enrollment period. With that in mind our offices will be open on the weekend of November 15th 2014 to help you get enrolled.

Open enrollment for individual plans begins November 15th, 2014 and ends February 15th 2015. Anyone who enrolls prior to the 15th of the month will be effective the 1st of the next month. This is important because you must enroll by December 15th in order for your plan to be effective on January 1st, 2015 and so on.

Being the first year of implementation, there has been significant confusion about who needs to enroll where. Please note that no one needs to enroll via the healthcare.gov website. Typically you will want to enroll via healthcare.gov in order to get any advanced premium tax credits, also known as subsidies, applied to your premiums. If you do not qualify for a APTC or subsidy, you have no reason to enroll through the marketplace.
