Congresswoman Advises Constituents: New Signup Deadline is December 15th

WASHINGTON, DC — Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement to mark the November 1st kickoff of HealthCare.Gov Open Enrollment:

“I encourage anyone in New Hampshire who buys their own insurance or who doesn’t currently have coverage to visit HealthCare.Gov starting today to see if they are eligible for financial help this year. Because HealthCare.Gov plan prices are tied to family income, more than half of potential Granite State enrollees will be able to find a 2018 plan for $75 or less per month. This year it’s more important than ever to shop around, because rising premiums will cause some consumers to become newly eligible for the HealthCare.Gov subsidy that helps make coverage affordable, and also because federal health care instability has caused many insurance companies to modify last year’s pricing and provider networks. Evaluating insurance options can be confusing, but trained professionals listed at are ready to help New Hampshire families navigate this year’s options. Last but not least, people in New Hampshire need to know that the Trump Administration has moved up the Open Enrollment deadline to December 15th. Granite Staters can’t afford to procrastinate: December 15th will be the final deadline to sign up for a 2018 plan.”
