Open Enrollment occurs in a number of ways: 
  • Companies have an internal open enrollment period for employees
  • Retirees purchase Medicare plans during this time
  • Individuals shopping insurance on the individual market
  • People looking for dual plans

For individuals shopping on the healthcare exchange, the timeline to purchase health insurance is Nov. 1, 2023 through Jan. 15, 2024 in most states.

What does dental insurance have to do with Open Enrollment? 

Dental insurance can be purchased at any time of year. But during Open Enrollment, dental insurance is top-of-mind as people shopping on the health exchanges are also looking for the right dental plan for them.

Some employers, especially small business owners, may not offer dental plans, sending people to the individual market to shop. People with Medicare may not want the coverage offered with their Medicare Advantage plan and choose to shop elsewhere. And with so many insurance commercials airing during this time, some people are reminded to think about dental insurance.
