November First, Health Insurance Season!
We have updated our website for Open Enrollment! This year RC Website Group executed a COMPLETE OVERHAUL! The new site will be up around lunchtime on Monday. Our full yearly newsletter is below, but for those just looking to quote now, Get Quotes Now!
| For our Clients who have Medicare, our brand-new Medicare webpage is full of valuable information as well as self-service quoting tools (you call us, we won’t call you unless you want us to), presented in an easy-to-follow format. Here’s the short cut: https://www.doitformemedicare.com|
For our Clients who are in need of Health Insurance, help with Pennie, GetcoveredNJ, MarylandHealthConnection, or Healthcare.gov, we sought to create a unique Health Insurance shopping and renewing experience. Here are our quick links:
|This time of year can get hectic, but we are here to help. To organize phone appointments this year we are using the services of Calendly. You can select a time to have a phone or virtual consultation with Joe or Robyn to discuss your 2022 options for Health Insurance.|
|The American Rescue Plan Act expanded financial assistance for millions more Americans this year, but will it continue into 2022? Most of our customers are going to see that prices appear to be going up again this open enrollment, while the income threshold to qualify will continue to remain high. This means that many will continue to qualify for subsidies/financial assistance, although the prices may not be as generous.|
For example, the majority of our clients reside in the Greater Philadelphia area and are insured with Independence Blue Cross. IBX will be introducing new Bronze plans as well as more Silver plans to help mange monthly cost.
Pennsylvanians will be entering into their second open enrollment with the state-based health insurance marketplace known as Pennie. Most of our Pennie clients can already see what the new price is and changing can be made relatively easy, but of course we can help facilitate that at no cost to you for service! Complimenting new plan options in PA, come new carriers as well. Cigna will be entering the Individual Under-65 Afforable Care Act market for Plan Year 2022, and other carriers like Ambetter and Oscar are continuing their PA expansions. This includes new counties and also new hospital networks!
Pennie Open Enrollment is November 1st to January 15th!
For our clients across the bridge in New Jersey, a brand-new carrier is coming to your state, and that is Ambetter from Wellcare! NJ will continue to provide it’s state subsidies in addition to the federal subsidies, all through their state based health insurance marketplace GetCoveredNJ, now heading into its second open enrollment!
GetCoveredNJ’s Open Enrollment is November 1st to January 31st
For our Maryland Health Connection clients and our clients still using the Federally Facilitated Marketplace known as Healthcare.gov, you will find many new plan and carrier options as well. The biggest news of Open Enrollment 2022 is that Aetna is returning the ACA market, and United Healthcare is expanding it’s footprint in a huge way! UHC did return for the 2021 open enrollment, however their options were few. For 2022 the nation’s top health insurer is returning to some key markets like Florida and Texas and offering competitively-priced options with great network access! Please note, UHC and Aetna will not be in PA, NJ, DE, and many other states for plan year 2022, but they have future plans to continue expansion
Maryland Health Connection and Healthcare.gov’s Open Enrollment is November 1st to January 31st!

|Do It For Me Insurance offers Life Insurance options through dozens of companies. Here is only one of our many options.

|If you are healthy but sick of paying for stacked plans that include services you never use, we are here to help you decide if a less-expensive option serves your needs.|
Please be careful of the junk “health plans” being sold by mass-telemarketers, cleverly disguised as health insurance. Read the fine print. “Health Plans” are NOT INSURANCE and will not catch you if you fall. Protect your income and assets with insurance which includes a STOP LOSS.
The maximum length of Short Term Medical in PA remains approx. 12 months (360 Days). Click here to quote and enroll!
Short Term Medical requires that you answer medical questions, but this is the only “Obamacare alternative” that protects your income and assets with an out of pocket maximum or “stop loss”. Pair it with UHC’s Health Protector Guard for a more comprehensive plan! Quote UHC Options Now (I recommend a higher deductible Short Term with a Health Protector Guard option that fits your budget).
We still have health insurance available through a few local and national associations, so for those not eligible for the subsidy and in good health – there are more options!

|Independence Blue Cross (Philadelphia, PA Region) recommends an accident, critical illness, or hospital plan to expand your coverage. These are plans that PAY YOU directly (or the provider) when unforeseen events occur, similar to Aflac (we offer them too) but endorsed by Independence Blue Cross. For example, it would help with lost wages while out of work. These plans are offered through Lifesecure and are available in most states. Click our easy to use link for more details and pricing|
Warning: This is NOT HEALTH INSURANCE, it is an indemnity plan meant to fill gaps that currently exist within health insurance.
