  2. New insurance plans are available in the marketplace from some of the top carriers in the state.
  3. Your cost may have changed for 2015. You should review your plan to see if your rates or your amount of financial help will change in January.
  4. If you do nothing, your current plan may be auto-renewed (if available) and you may miss out on a better deal and cost savings.
