Individual & Family Open Enrollment

What to Expect:

Because you bought your plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, whether or not you received financial assistance in 2017 will determine your next steps on how to re-enroll for coverage in 2018.
Option 1 Keep Your Current Plan
If you're happy with your plan and DO NOT receive financial assistance from the government, no further action is needed; you will be automatically re-enrolled if you do not re-enroll through the Marketplace.

OR

If you're happy with your plan and you DO receive financial assistance from the government, call Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield (1-800-800-4298) or your agent or broker. We can review your eligibility information and make certain you receive the financial assistance to which you're entitled. We also can help you re-enroll or update your plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

You must re-enroll or update your plan by December 15 for the change to be effective January 1, 2018.
Option 2 Check for More Affordable Plans or Financial Assistance
If you want to see if more affordable plans are available or if you will qualify for financial assistance through the Health Insurance Marketplace, you can start shopping on November 1 through Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, a broker or agent, or visit the Health Insurance Marketplace.
