Feb. 4, 2015 – Now is the time to act if you are interested in joining the State Bar of Wisconsin’s health insurance. Individual health insurance open enrollment expires Feb. 15. Explore the different options quickly – but there is still time.
Health insurance has changed significantly under the Affordable Care Act. As a result, here are some changes that may impact you:
- Everyone is required to enroll in health insurance or pay a tax penalty.
- You may qualify for federal tax credits to make health insurance more affordable.
If you do not sign up within the open-enrollment period, you will only be able to pursue changes in your health insurance if a triggering event occurs. For more information on what constitutes a triggering event, see “Know the Rules: Special Enrollment Periods for Health Insurance Plans” in the Dec. 17, 2014, issue of InsideTrack™.
