Encourage Active Enrollment in the Final Days of Open Enrollment!
From the ACE TA Center - Most clients have just days left to enroll in 2019 health coverage! Open Enrollment ends on December 15 in states that use HealthCare.gov. Some states with their own state-based health insurance exchange have extended 2019 Open Enrollment dates, as noted below.
Make sure your clients know the deadline in your state and how to get one-on-one help finding and selecting a plan, filling out the application, and enrolling. Use the ACE TA Center Twitter Toolkit for Marketplace Open Enrollment to help get the word out in these final days.

- Minnesota: January 13, 2019

Encourage active plan renewals!
If a client does not log in and actively choose a plan by the last day of Open Enrollment, they will be automatically re-enrolled in their current plan. If a client’s plan is no longer available this year, they will be auto-enrolled into a different plan with a similar premium amount.
Encourage all clients to actively compare plans to avoid getting auto-enrolled into a plan that may not be the best option for their health needs. They will be unable to change their plan once this happens.
