END THE INSANE "OPEN ENROLLMENT" SYSTEM

FOR HEALTH INSURANCE

People need to be able to enroll in a health care plan in order to deal with this crisis.  This should apply to all health insurance plans, including Medicare Part D, the drug plan.

Having a mere six weeks to choose and enroll in a health care plan is insane. And those who miss the enrollment period have to wait an entire year to sign up, unless they meet a special exemption.

In a time of crisis, where everyone needs health care in order to protect the general populous from a pandemic, the limitations on enrollment must be brought to an end. People must be able to buy health insurance anytime they want.

It doesn't cost anything to change the enrollment period.

And during Trump administration, it was shortened from its previous deadline of January 31st to December 15th.
