Open enrollment is the period during which people can purchase health insurance for the upcoming year. If you don't sign up for health insurance during the open enrollment period, there's a possibility that you won't be able to sign up for health insurance until the next open enrollment period unless you experience a qualifying event.

While health insurance can be costly, Mira offers an alternative for just $45 per month. This includes affordable urgent care visits, low-cost lab testing, and discounted prescriptions. Sign up today to get started.
