Open Enrollment

Open enrollment is held once a year and is when people have the option to change their health plan for any reason. During this time, people can:
  • Change their health plan for any reason.
  • Review the added benefits from all six health plans to see what best meets their needs.
  • Call the Enrollment Helpline to ask questions: 1-844-374-9159.

When can a person change health plans?

  • In the first 90 days after a person becomes a CCC Plus member
  • During open enrollment
  • At other times, if approved by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS)

If the person likes their current plan, they do not need to do anything.
