For those who have been wondering whether or not it was possible to purchase health insurance under the 2021 Special Enrollment Period (SEP), it was recently announced that enrollment has been extended until August 15, 2021.  The decision was made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, moreover to accommodate any uninsured individuals, families or couples who may still be dealing with ongoing health issues, financial concerns, and other related factors.  

And while there are a number of ways to go about signing up, the plan selection and enrollment process can be a bit intimidating to some.  Working with a local health insurance agent is a smart way to expedite the process, while ensuring that no oversights or mistakes have been made when it comes to the application process.   

The process of signing up for health insurance can be done directly through the healthcare marketplace, either online or over the phone.  You’ll need to read all of the instructions and guidelines in detail, compare plans, select one that meets your needs, and then ensure that your application and all required documents are in order prior to being submitted.  A more simplistic option, as many have learned, is to contact a local health insurance agency.
