2018 Affordable Care Act Annual Enrollment Period

November 1st, 2017 marks the start of the 2018 Affordable Care Act Annual Enrollment Period for individuals needing an Affordable Care Act (ACA) policy. Over the next month you will receive your Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) from your insurance carrier. For some, you may have discovered that your carrier will no longer be offering the same plan. We understand that some of these changes may be confusing. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance in determining if you need new coverage options.  

2018 Annual Enrollment Period is shorter

The Annual Enrollment Period will be shorter this year, running from November 1, 2017 – December 15, 2017. There will be no extensions, and no effective dates other than January 1, 2018.

How do I purchase an ACA plan?

www.healthcare.gov provides a step by step way to enroll in a health insurance plan. However, we understand that purchasing health insurance on or off the healthcare.gov exchange can be confusing. In addition to contacting our agents, healthcare.gov provides a search tool for finding organizations or individuals who will help you choose an ACA plan: https://localhelp.healthcare.gov/#intro

Client Testimonials

2018 Affordable Care Act Annual Enrollment Period | Wooten Agency

  • "This is a family-owned business who cares about their potential clients. I was looking for help with health insurance and even though it turns out I don't need new health insurance at this time, I feel compelled to write a review because of how thorough Brendan was. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. He didn't seem pushy at all and listened to everything I had to say. He made sure he was getting all the information correct. I would recommend this agency for any insurance needs." - Doug C.
  • "I sought help from Wooten Agency; Ed, along with Nancy, took the bull by the horns and sorted things out for us very quickly. Shortly thereafter Ginny took over. She is definitely most qualified as a plan selector for Medicare plans and issues related to Medicare. My appreciation to Crystal for the gracious way she always responds to telephone calls and makes every effort to ensure one is not forgotten. And Dana....the one contact we had was enough to find out you are similarly inclined to help a client." - Frank V.
  • "You [Aaron] have been so helpful, and you have all taken a personal interest in my individual and specific questions in order to make the best insurance choices for my needs. Thank you all! I look forward to working together in the future months and years." - Susan H.
