January 31st marks the final day to enroll in health insurance coverage for 2016. Once again, Room One is here to help! Our two certified Navigators are available to help you sign up for insurance or make changes to your plan by the January 31st deadline. A few key things to know:
- January 31st is the last day to sign up for 2016 coverage
- Enroll by January 23rd to begin coverage on February 1st
- If you enroll after the 23rd but before January 31st, coverage will begin on March 1st--avoid a gap in coverage and enroll by the 23rd!
- This year, there are lots of new coverage options to choose from for 2016
- The tax penalty for not being covered goes up this year ($695/person or 2.5% of income, whichever is higher)
Come by or call Room One, 997-2050, to make an appointment with a Navigator. We look forward to working with you!
