Who's ready for a little window-shopping? I know that Black Friday is on the brain for a lot of folks, but don't forget that there's another important shopping date that you should be aware of.
Healthcare.gov, better known as the Obamacare website, is up and running just in time for open enrollment. Right now, the site is available for folks to window-shop and find healthcare plans.
Open enrollment is open for a shorter time period this year, from November 15 to February 15, compared to the enrollment period of October 1 to March 31 last year.
However, the new version of Healthcare.gov is up and running for those who purchase their family's health insurance through the exchange..
Healthcare.gov is ready for you to go on a shopping spree ... for health insurance. The site is available for folks who need to check out new health insurance plans and will be open for window shopping until open enrollment begins on Wednesday, November 15.
And contrary to last year where the site required a lot of personal information before you could even see possible health plans, Healthcare.gov has done a major overhaul to allow you to see possible plans before you have to enter your details.
I know, it may seem like risky business considering the website's checkered history. First the site didn't work at all, then people couldn't access it and then it was hacked.
But with the latest redesign, upgrades and commitment to security, it just may be worth looking at to choose health insurance for you and your family.
