On November 1, 2015, Rural Mutual Insurance Company started to help WFBF members navigate 2016’s Health Insurance Open Enrollment. WFBF members have the ability to quote, compare, and purchase individual and family health insurance products online, over the phone, or with their local Rural Mutual agent.
Based on household size and income, Rural Mutual agents can help WFBF members determine if they qualify for premium tax credits and deductible cost sharing reductions plans.
Key Dates to Remember:
- Applications must be submitted by December 15, 2015 for a January 1, 2016 effective date.
- 2016 Open Enrollment ends on January 31, 2016.
- WFBF members will not be able to enroll in a 2016 plan after the January 31 deadline unless you experience a qualifying event such as loss of coverage due to a job change or birth of a child.
The 2016 penalty for not having health insurance is $695 per person or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater.
Rural Mutual Insurance Company has made it easy for WFBF members to shop online, over the phone, or please contact their local Rural Mutual Agent for help to simplify the complexity of health insurance shopping.
