Your health care coverage is your choice. Since your current health plan will no longer be available after December 31, 2020, we will be moving you to a new 2021 BCBSIL plan. You can keep this new 2021 plan or buy a different 2021 health plan during the Open Enrollment Period (OEP). These dates are November 1 - December 15, 2020.
Plus, because your plan is ending, you also qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). This gives you extra time to buy your 2021 health plan. These dates are January 1 - February 28, 2021.
Please note, if you want coverage that starts on January 1, 2021, you must enroll in a new plan on or before December 31, 2020.
Here are your 2 choices for 2021:
BCBSIL has a variety of health plan options for you and your family. If you'd like to look for new health care coverage, you can buy a new health plan on our website during 2021 OEP.
