The Affordable Care Act gives everyone more choices when shopping for a health plan. It allows you to compare and shop for health coverage that meets your needs and fits your budget, whether you purchase directly through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, the Marketplace or a licensed insurance agent.Open Enrollment for 2018 health plans begins on Nov. 1, 2017 and runs through Dec. 15, 2017. You will need to decide if you are going to apply for a new Marketplace plan, keep your current plan or pick a new one. Just like making a major household purchase, like a car or a TV, there a few things you should do to prepare for buying a health plan. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself as you seek a plan:What provider network does the plan use?
How often do you visit the doctor?
Do you take prescription drugs?
How much can you spend?
Do you need dental coverage?
What do the plans look like?In the Marketplace, you can find plans in four levels — Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Here is a graphic that outlines the options. Now that you know the questions to ask yourself, do you have any questions for us? If you're ready, start shopping now or, if you have questions call us at 888-731-0383 or log in and ask below!
