What Texans Should Do In Regards To Healthcare At The End Of The Year

Doctors, nurses, and hospital staff across the country are risking their health and even their lives to care for victims of COVID-19. In New York, which has become the epicenter of the pandemic, carers are having to make impossibly difficult decisions and witness horrors most people can't even imagine. Here at home, we're fortunate enough to have a relatively few cases at the moment, but healthcare workers at bracing for the possibility of more and hoping the public will continue to stay home and slow the spread of the disease so our local hospitals aren't overwhelmed. There are no words that could adequately express our gratitude to the healthcare workers continuing to walk into a living nightmare and do their jobs.

KUT News reports that individuals in Texas will have a chance to find a new healthcare provider in November of 2024. That is when the new enrollment period for 2025 is set to begin. The Texas Department Of Insurance also provided a comment to KUT News from Ben Gonzalez:

“If you get a notice of nonrenewal, we’d encourage you to start researching other health plans right away and plan on making a selection before your current coverage ends."

As this is a developing story, we will have more information when it becomes available.
