What happens after I submit my application for health insurance on Policygenius?

Learn about what happens after you apply for health insurance through Policygenius.

What you need to know

Once you've selected a health insurance plan, applying for that plan through Policygenius is easy. You fill out a short online application form, then complete the final step with a quick enrollment phone call with a licensed agent. On that call, the licensed agent will verify your identity, double-check eligibility and answer any questions you may have. After you enroll in a health insurance plan, you will get your membership materials (including your member ID card) and the first premium bill directly from the health insurance company. You are responsible for paying the bill to ensure that your coverage goes into effect, and to keep current on those payments.

After you enroll in a health insurance plan, you will get your membership materials (including your member ID card) and the first premium bill directly from the health insurance company. You are responsible for paying the bill to ensure that your coverage goes into effect, and to keep current on those payments. Open enrollment runs from November 1, 2018 through December 15, 2018.

If you miss this window you cannot enroll until the Marketplace re-opens in November 2019 unless you have a special qualifying event such as having a baby or losing your job. This is designed to prevent people from taking advantage of the system by enrolling and dropping insurance multiple times a year when they get sick.
