Marketplace Open Enrollment Tip - Start planning 'Account Tune-Ups' with clients

In most cases, clients have only 45 days to enroll in a health plan during Open Enrollment. Before November 1, it’s important to conduct an Account Tune-Up, which is a pre-enrollment appointment to help prepare clients for Open Enrollment. These appointments help ensure:

  • Clients understand the importance of health coverage.
  • Marketplace accounts are up-to-date.
  • No insurance payments are owed.
  • Income taxes are filed to ensure future eligibility for Advance Premium Tax Credits.
  • Clients are ready to start enrolling on November 1st.
