The federal health insurance marketplace, and most state exchanges, are now open for a Special Enrollment Period through May 15, 2021, due to the pandemic. Booksellers are encouraged to contact the American Booksellers Association’s health insurance partner LIG Solutions to regain access to health insurance options usually limited to General Open Enrollment which ended in mid-December.
Coverage options include*
- Major medical
- Short-term health plans
- Dental plans
- Critical care coverage
- Additional supplemental health and wellness options
*Note: Available plans can vary by state and state healthcare regulations
LIG Solutions offers both individual health plans and business health plans (through the Health Reimbursement Arrangement Program) that are tailored to booksellers’ unique health and financial needs. An LIG Solutions advisor will help you review affordable coverage from major insurance carriers across the U.S.
Before the three month Special Enrollment Period ends on May 15, do the following to get more information:
