If there’s a silver lining to 2020, it’s that the “slow down” in the pace of our personal lives has allowed more time to focus on self-care and spending time with family. As we all stay at home to avoid large social gatherings over the holidays to keep us and our loved ones safe, it’s also important to make sure we’re covered with health and dental insurance.
To keep you and your family covered this new year, you can enroll for a health or dental plan on Washington Healthplanfinder now through December 15th for coverage beginning January 1st. Although that date is rapidly approaching, there is still time for Washington residents to reevaluate what their needs are to plan for how they’re living now.
While many of us typically allow our health plans to automatically renew, it’s worth exploring other options each year to ensure we’re getting the best plan that fits the needs of each person in our family. With Washington Healthplanfinder you can access more affordable options and receive help with determining your tax credits and cost-sharing reductions to make plans more affordable.
To assist with researching your options and to accommodate last-minute health insurance shoppers, Washington Healthplanfinder extended their customer support hours. The call center will be open Saturday, December 12th and Sunday, December 13th from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It is also extending its hours on Monday, December 14th and Tuesday, December 15th to be open from 7:30 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. — perfect for the down-to-the-wire decision-makers.
“We want to make sure there are no barriers for individuals to get coverage. We know life is busy, especially this year with parents who are still working and being teachers as well,” said Shawna Crume- Bruce, marketing manager for Washington Healthplanfinder. “There are people who work swing shifts and people who work overnight. We’ve just found that opening up those hours is helpful, especially as we get close to that looming deadline to sign-up for coverage beginning Jan. 1.”
