Annual Enrollment for Affordable Care Act Plans

The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) for 2017 Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans will begin November 1, 2016. Over the next month you will receive your Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) from your insurance carrier. Please make sure that you have reviewed all changes to your plan.

Importantly, some insurance carriers like United Healthcare and Aetna have decided to withdraw from the healthcare.gov marketplace in North Carolina for 2017. This change may limit the options for individuals seeking a subsidy or tax credit. Our agents understand the confusion that this may be causing, and we encourage you to schedule an appointment so we can help you determine your coverage options.

Mark Your Calendars

AEP begins November 1; however, there are a few important dates to keep in mind:

  • December 15, 2016: Last day to enroll for January 1, 2017 effective date
  • January 15, 2017: Last day to enroll for February 1, 2017 effective date
  • January 31, 2017: Last day to enroll for March 1, 2017 effective date

We understand that the changes to North Carolina coverage may be overwhelming. As your agents, we will continue to advocate for your needs and to help you navigate your options. We are currently taking appointments for the Annual Enrollment, and encourage you to call us as soon as possible.

Client Testimonials

Annual Enrollment for Affordable Care Act Plans | The 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.
