Dr. Casey Harbine shared information on what you need to know as open enrollment beings for the Affordable Care Act during the Nov. 1 edition of Morning Rounds.

Enrollment runs from Nov. 1 until Dec. 15 and marks the first open enrollment since President Donald Trump took office. Earlier this month, the administration decided to end federal subsidies for many policies on the individual exchanges.

Three companies are still offering individual health plans this year in Montana – Blue Cross Blue Shield of Montana, PacificSource and the Montana Health Co-Op – but each company will raise its average rates between 13% and 20%.
