IBPA Health Care Program Offers Help with Medicare Open Enrollment
Thursday, September 24, 2020
(Manhattan Beach, CA - September 24, 2020) -- Medicare’s open enrollment period for 2021 will run from October 15 to December 7. IBPA members should prepare by contacting IBPA's membership health insurance partner LIG Solutions for a no-obligation health insurance assessment.
During the Medicare open enrollment period, Medicare plan enrollees can make changes to their health insurance plan by switching, dropping, or adding coverage.
Changes to coverage will become effective on January 1.
Most states’ open enrollment periods for under 65 Affordable Care Act (ACA) coverage run from November 1 to December 15.
IBPA’s partnership with LIG Solutions allows IBPA members to gain access to LIG’s extensive knowledge of the health insurance market, which helps members navigate a wide array
of insurance options during and outside open enrollment, including ACA-compliant major medical, Medicare/supplements, short-term policies, vision, dental, critical care, and supplemental coverage, as well as small group/Health Reimbursement Arrangement
Find IBPA's LIG landing page, which has a dedicated phone number for members and a recorded webinar explaining the program in the official IBPA Membership Benefits Handbook (current member login required).
Members can call or fill out the form on the landing page at any time to speak with an LIG representative about their specific health insurance options. These options are customized and flexible to various needs. Although options are limited outside of
open enrollment, LIG Solutions can walk you through options to “bridge” coverage through the rest of the year.
