Texas Healthcare 2021 Open Enrollment
Freeway’s licensed and experienced agents are here to help you select, apply for, and enroll in the right healthcare insurance plan for you and your family.
- Texas has one of the highest numbers of people enrolled in healthcare insurance in the country, and residents are required to enroll with an insurance provider.
- The Open Enrollment period to secure your health insurance for 2021 runs from November 1, 2020, to December 15, 2020. You must enroll within this window to change or add coverage as needed in 2021 (unless you experience a qualifying event).
- There are ten providers in Texas to choose from, all with varying coverage and premiums.
- You may qualify for financial assistance based on your income that helps pay for both coverage and care. Note that, while premiums have increased, subsidies have also increased for those who qualify.
- Enrollment can be done from your home’s comfort and safety online or over the phone.
Take Care of Yourself and Your Family with Health Insurance
Navigating health insurance options on your own can be overwhelming and costly. Factors such as where you live, the number of people in your family, and your healthcare needs will impact which insurance is right for you and your loved ones. Freeway Insurance understands this and will help make the entire process as straight forward as possible.
If you can’t afford health insurance, there are options available to make sure you and your family are covered—and avoid the penalties that can come from not being insured.
You can also give us a call at 877-707-0465 to talk to an expert insurance agent who can answer your questions and help you find the health insurance plan that fits your needs and budget.
Health Insurance Helps with More than Illness
The right health insurance coverage will do more than help if you or a family member is sick or injured. It helps you stay healthy and take important preventative actions like getting routine checkups. With health insurance, you don’t have to wait until things are serious to receive the care you need.
If you face a major medical incident, healthcare insurance can protect your finances while receiving treatment. Surgery, hospitalization, and medications quickly add up if you don’t have coverage. Health insurance is more than a must-do. It’s a must-have that can protect your health and finances.
