Insurance Navigator


Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems provides a certified Cover Kansas Navigator.

All 2017 Marketplace health insurance plans will be up for renewal during Open Enrollment. Open enrollment will begin November 1st and end on December 15th, 2017. Your current insurance company will be sending you information about your insurance plan and coverage for the upcoming year. REVIEW this information carefully for any changes. Make sure your current providers remain in your plan network.

If your current plan is still available and you would like to keep it - and if your household size and income have not changed - you do not have to do anything. You will be automatically renewed for 2018. However, you must update your information with the Marketplace to make sure you get the full savings you deserve. If your current health plan does not meet your needs, now is the time to change your plan.

It is possible that your current plan may not be available in 2018. If you do not choose another plan and enroll, the Marketplace will automatically enroll you in a similar plan.

If your employer offers insurance benefits you may not be eligible for Marketplace Healthcare Insurance coverage.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO INFORM THE MARKETPLACE IF YOUR HOUSEHOLD INCOME OR SIZE HAS CHANGED. THESE CHANGES MAY ADJUST YOUR TAX CREDIT AMOUNT.

Have Life Changes Affected Your Health Insurance Needs?
You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) outside of Open Enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace, if you've experienced a life changing event, such as changing jobs, loss of health insurance, birth/adoption or marriage/divorce. Don't Wait! You only have 60 days after a major life change to apply.
