Important: Open enrollment for many kids ends April 30th

We cannot say this enough: If you want to buy an individual health plan for your child or enroll them in your individual health plan, you have until April 30 to do it. Do not delay.

Individual coverage is typically bought by people who don't have access to employer-sponsored coverage, or whose employer doesn't cover dependents.

The next open-enrollment period for kids this year won't be until Sept. 15 through Oct. 31.

For more on this, please see our March 14 news release.
