WINhealth will not offer individual plans for 2016. Individual members should choose a new plan with a different carrier for 2016 during Open Enrollment, which begins November 1, 2015. To avoid a lapse in coverage, members must enroll in a new plan by December 15th to ensure their new coverage will take effect on January 1, 2016.
In order for members to continue to receive health insurance coverage, they must continue to make their scheduled health insurance premium payments. All health insurance policies will terminate on December 31, 2015. Members will have 12 months from their termination date to file their health insurance claims.
So long as premium payments are current, groups will be covered by their plan through December 31, 2015. Groups will need to find a new plan with a different carrier for January 1, 2016 and beyond. WINhealth and the Department of Insurance will work with groups to find alternative coverage.
The exception to this is for most groups with a November renewal date and all groups with a December renewal date. WINhealth will not renew groups in November or December that have not already submitted their required renewal package. As such, these groups will need to find a plan with a different carrier.
