When Can I Enroll in the Exchange?

By on | No Comments

Question:I am 60 and retired. I kept the retiree insurance offered by my previous employer while waiting for a response from an individual insurance application for a plan that was half the cost. I was denied insurance based on pre-existing conditions. It is VERY difficult to continue paying these premiums ($600)and would like to know if I will be able to enroll through an exchange in the fall of 2013 for the 2014 implementation of the health care act, or will I have to be uninsured to do so?

Answer: Yes. You will be able to enroll in a ACA conforming health plan through your state exchange anytime after 10/1/13 and your new coverage will be effective on 1/1/14.
