Step 4 to stay covered through the Marketplace: Choose a health plan
Published on December 5, 2014
If you bought a health insurance plan through the Marketplace in 2014, you’ll need to decide whether to renew your current plan or change plans for 2015. To get started, check out the 5 Steps to Staying Covered.
Step 4 to staying covered is to choose a health plan for 2015. You can keep the same plan you had in 2014 (as long as it’s still offered) or select a new one that better fits your needs. If you want to stay enrolled in your 2014 plan, use the 14-digit plan ID in the letter you get from your health plan.
Here are some things to remember as you choose your plan:
- You can choose any plan available to you in your area in 2015, no matter what kind of coverage you had in 2014.
- All 2015 Marketplace health plans include all benefits and protections required by the health care law.
- You can use any premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions (if you qualify) only if you enroll in a plan through the Marketplace.
Take action by December 15, 2014 to make sure you have the right coverage for your needs starting January 1.
