Enrollment


The Marketplace provides an excellent place to shop and compare individual competitive plans and rates. Annual Open Enrollment is November 1st through January 31st of each year. Once open enrollment closes, you may still be eligible for a special open enrollment period if your life circumstances change. Your agent at Pacific Benefit Consultants is ready to address your questions or concerns, and will be able to assist you with the enrollment process. Call your agent for an appointment or for instruction on how to enroll.

2017 Open Enrollment for individual plans is closed. You may qualify for a special open enrollment period if you have had a qualifying event. Please contact one of our agents specializing in the individual market to see if you can still qualify for an individual plan.

Here is the process for enrolling online via www.HealthCare.gov:
