Independence Blue Cross Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Koleen Cavanaugh discussed tips for consumers to make their health plan choices for Open Enrollment during a recent “Local Matters” segment on Fox 29.
Cavanaugh discussed the basics of Open Enrollment and what people should look for when choosing a plan. She reminded viewers that consumers must enroll by Dec. 15 if they want a plan that begins on Jan. 1, 2024.
She also reminded viewers that while it’s important to consider how much a plan may cost every month, it’s also important to consider how much it will cost when care is needed. This could be in the form of copays, coinsurance, or deductibles. She advised that consumers should make sure they can afford to use the plan they enroll in.
The segment ran several times on Good Day Philadelphia, and FOX 29 News between Nov. 11 and Nov. 15.
