END THE INSANE "OPEN ENROLLMENT" SYSTEM

FOR HEALTH INSURANCE

People need to be able to enroll in a health care plan all year round.  This should apply to all health insurance plans, including Medicare Part D, the drug plan.

Having roughly two months to choose and enroll in a health care plan is insane. The current enrollment period for health insurance is November 1 - January 15. And those who miss the enrollment period have to wait an entire year to sign up, unless they meet a special exemption.

The open enrollment plan for a medicare drug plan is limited as well. See the dates here.

In a time where the Covid pandemic is still very much a threat, everyone needs health care. 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.
