Renew Your Qualified Health or Dental Plan Now

If you’re enrolled in a Qualified Health or Dental Plan through Washington Healthplanfinder, you’ll need to renew your coverage each calendar year to stay covered. Customers who are auto-renewed into the same or similar plan for the upcoming coverage year will have information presented to them when they sign in to their account. During open enrollment, you can shop and compare new health plans and even add new dental coverage. 

Near open enrollment, you’ll receive a renewal message that will give you the steps to finalize your coverage for the coming year. If your current plan is unavailable, this message will also include details about a new plan we’ve picked for you so you don’t have a gap in coverage. During open enrollment, you should browse and shop to make sure that you have the best coverage for your needs and budget.
 

Renew Your Coverage

 

Here are Important Factors to Consider During Renewal

Cost: If you want to make sure you have the best priced plan in your area, you might want to shop for new coverage options on Washington Healthplanfinder. New plan options mean new, lower prices.

Coverage: If you want to take advantage of new benefit packages, or adjust the benefits you have now, you might want to check out new coverage options in your area. More health plans available means more options to choose from to find coverage that suits your needs. This includes checking whether a health care provider or clinic that you visit frequently is covered.

Convenience: If you are happy with your current plan, your plan (or a plan very similar) is offered next year, and your renewal letter says you are eligible to automatically renew your coverage, then you’re done! Just keep paying your monthly premiums and you will auto-renew for coverage that begins January 1st.
