GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) February 15 is a big day in the health care world. It is the last day you can sign up for health insurance on the individual market.
If you don’t have coverage through your employer, there are options available to you. Priority Health has experts who can help coach you through the process or they can set you up with a broker who can help you purchase a plan.
If you don’t sign up before February 15, you cannot get coverage until 2016 and will have to pay any medical costs out of pocket. You’ll also be penalized with a fine out of your tax return.
Signing up for health insurance can be confusing. Priority Health has online tools that show what your options are, explain what terms mean, and walk you through the process.
