Springboard for the Arts: Health Insurance help

Springboard-logoOpen enrollment for health insurance is here.
If you’re uninsured, now’s the time to sign up for health insurance for 2016. And, if you currently have private health insurance, now’s the time to renew or change your health insurance plan for 2016.

Click here ( for more info and instructions.

The key date is December 15! You must enroll in a health insurance plan by December 15, 2015 for the plan to start on January 1, 2016. If you want to switch your current health insurance plan, do it by December 15; if you don’t, your current plan might be automatically renewed for 2016 (check with your insurance provider).

Remember: There’s a legal requirement to have health insurance; the fee for not being insured next year is $695 per person or 2.5% of your family income — whichever is greater.
