The new Special Enrollment Period (SEP) is available NOW through August 15th. If a member already enrolled in 2021 CGHC coverage, there is no requirement to do anything during this time.
Anyone can enroll during the new SEP, either through Healthcare.gov or directly through CGHC. Enrollee’s applications must be received by CGHC by August 15th. On-exchange enrollees have 30 days to choose a benefit plan after submitted an application. If you are a current CGHC member and would like to change your plan during this SEP, please contact your broker or the CGHC sales team at 855.494.2667.
- Effective Date
After choosing a benefit plan, coverage will begin on the first day of the following month! For example: if an enrollee chooses a plan on April 30th, coverage will begin on May 1st.
- Benefit Plan or Level Changes
Enrollees do not have to remain in the same metal level. If current CGHC members choose a new CGHC plan, their maximum out-of-pocket and deductible expenses from 2021 will carry over to their new benefit plan! Carry over is not guaranteed if you are going to a different health insurance carrier.*
- Who should enroll?
This is a great opportunity for anyone who missed their chance to enroll during the original Open Enrollment Period. Anyone interested in comprehensive, honest health insurance can enroll in a CGHC plan during this time!
