Open Enrollment is coming up – are you ready?
Here at Health Options, we know how busy the Open Enrollment season is for our broker partners, which is why we want to make sure we prepare you with important information about what to expect.
Brokers are required to meet our annual training requirements/CMS training requirements for the 2020 plan year, and a way to accomplish that is to participate in one of Health Options’ annual broker education sessions scheduled for October 15th, 16th and 17th (see Important Key Dates post).
Please also be sure to review renewals and new business early for competitive pricing. January group renewals and new business quoting will be available in early October through our online storefront. For individual and family plans, plan preview will be available 10/15/19, with enrollment activities allowed on 11/1/19. Mark your calendars to be sure not to miss these important enrollment deadlines.
As always, if you have questions or need guidance, please reach out to the Business Development team at (207) 402-3353, and we would be happy to provide support by joining enrollment meetings and/or employee education sessions, for both new and renewing business. Just contact us – we are here to help!
The Maine legislature recently passed four bills, effective September 19, 2019, that pertain to health insurance plans and carriers. These regulations do not require any action by providers but may impact Health Options’ processes, payment, and benefits.
