Share Article

Fortier Insurance Services, the official insurance broker for the California Cosmetology Association, assists members of the beauty industry and independent contractor business owners in California, Washington and Oregon with enrolling in a health plan through their respective marketplace.

We plan to be a leader in helping everyone eligible in the beauty industry find affordable health insurance.

There are three important dates to remember: October 1, 2013, January 1, 2014, and March 31, 2014. Open Enrollment begins on October 1, 2013. All individuals who are eligible to enroll in a health plan can do so in the Marketplace. The Open Enrollment period is from October 1, 2013 until March 31, 2014. Health Insurance Marketplace is also known as the health insurance “exchange.” Fortier Insurance is preparing to get the certification and training required in CA, WA, and OR to help each eligible individual looking for individual or family health insurance.

Fortier Insurance will have a qualified team of enrollers and agents explain all of the health plans available in one’s area, and whether one qualifies for free or low-cost coverage. The Premium Assistance Program can help make health insurance extremely affordable. Premium assistance programs are aimed at low-income families, and offer the same level of benefits they would have under Medicaid for the same cost. As soon as an individual qualifies for one of these programs, coverage can begin immediately.

January 1, 2014 is the date new health coverage begins. If an individual enrolled between October 1, 2013 and December 15, 2013 and has made their first premium payment, health coverage will begin on January 1, 2014. If an individual enrolls during any other time during Open Enrollment between the 1st and the 15th day of the month, coverage will begin on the first day of the next month.

Providing value to industry members is Fortier Insurance’s specialty. They offer quality affordable healthcare from multiple carriers, including “Covered California,” “Cover Oregon,” and “Washington Health Plan Finder.” Their goal is to be a leader in helping workers in the beauty industry find a plan that fits their needs and budget.

Open Enrollment ends March 31, 2014. After this date, private health insurance is only available through a special enrollment period in the event of a qualifying life event, such as job loss, birth or divorce. Small employers however, can begin offering health insurance coverage at any time.
