Do I need different health insurance if I move to Illinois from another state?

Choosing the right healthcare insurance is important, even more so because you are normally limited as to when you can make changes. You can look for a new plan during the open enrollment period starting in November, unless you there are special circumstances. If you have a "qualifying event," you can make changes such as adding beneficiaries.

At Green Family Insurance Inc., we help Illinois find health insurance that will meet the needs of their families. When circumstances change, we can help you make the changes you need.

What To Do If You Move

If you move within the state, you need to report your new address on your healthcare application as soon as possible. However, if you move to another state, you will need to change your insurance and find a plan in the new state. You are allowed to change your insurance if you are moving to another state.

In order to change your insurance, you may need to fill out a whole new application. Let your insurance agent know if you need any help because you need to take care of the paperwork in a timely manner. Failure to follow procedures could cause you to have a gap in insurance coverage.

Make Sure You Keep Your Coverage

If you have insurance in a different state, you may not have access to any of the medical professionals you need. Even if it is the same company, the level and kind of coverage may be different.
