Last Wednesday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) made two announcements about open enrollment periods:
1. Open enrollment for 2015 will take place November 15, 2014 through February 15, 2015—a month longer than HHS had initially contemplated. This is welcome news!
2. There will be no change in the enrollment period for this year—enrollment will end on March 31, as scheduled. We all have an important role to play in reminding consumers to get busy and enroll now.
