I just wanted to make you aware that if you thought you would wait until February to pickup individual medical insurance coverage you thought wrong. January 31st is the deadline for open enrollment in 2022.
Last year New Jersey was able to offer year round open enrollment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What did that mean? You could enroll in a medical plan without any proof or prior coverage or a qualify event.
That exception is gone for 2022. Meaning that if you don’t have a qualifying event i.e. marriage, divorce, job loss, baby, or moving into a new geographic area you won’t be able to get coverage.
