Open enrollment  for the Health Insurance Marketplace is open for enrollment, re-enrollment, or to change plans. The open enrollment deadline is December 15. As a reminder, any Marketplace plan chosen must still meet the University's insurance criteria. Generally, HMO exchange plans from states other than Pennsylvania will not be accepted, nor will exchange plans that only provide catastrophic coverage.
