Sneak Preview of Health Care Premiums

November 7th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Starting this weekend, consumers can get an early peek at 2015 premiums and plans under President Barack Obama's health care law, the administration said Friday.

HealthCare.gov's second open enrollment season starts Nov. 15, a week from Saturday. But spokeswoman Lori Lodes said that consumers will be able to "window shop" for plans before then.

"Window shopping is ready to go," said Lodes. "There is no log-in or application required."

After answering a few questions, consumers can look at plans in their area and get an estimate of how much their premiums will be, including any financial assistance they would be eligible for.

Consumers will later have to set up an account — or go back to their existing account — to actually enroll for 2015. Current customers who do nothing will be automatically renewed as of Jan. 1, but they may well miss out on potential savings.
