For those of you who’ve been busy throughout the holidays, it is important that you know that open enrollment for health insurance started on October 15 and is ending January 15. State lawmakers are deciding however, whether to extend the enrollment period to Jan. 31. In most states, open enrollment is from November 1 to December 15, but California has permanently adopted a three-month schedule for California open enrollment. Coverage purchased between October 15 and December 15 will be effective January 1, while coverage purchased between December 16 and January 15 will be effective February 1.
