The 2018 Special Enrollment Period (SEP) is quickly approaching. This means groups that are unable to meet contribution and/or participation requirements can apply from November 15–December 15, 2017 for coverage effective January 1, 2018.
Please remember groups must satisfy all other requirements imposed by a carrier; it is only contribution and participation requirements that are waived during SEP.
While the window is open until Friday, December 15, 2017, the level of case completion at this date varies by carrier. A carrier may require that a group also be completed (no pending items) by December 15, or may even require them to be approved by December 15. It is important to know each carrier’s deadline and requirements. Plan ahead to ensure you don’t miss this important window.
Please feel free to give us a call with any questions!
