The Department of Finance announced Monday that the open enrollment period for the CNMI Government Group Health and Life Insurance will be from Nov. 16, 2020, to Dec. 18, 2020, for coverage effective Jan. 1, 2021.
Despite widespread increases to health care premiums throughout the national insurance market due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Ralph DLG Torres and Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios have successfully obtained agreement that the health insurance employee premium rates will be lower than the national average.
According to Finance Secretary David DLG Atalig, “Now, more than ever, affordable and accessible health care coverage is a necessity for our government employees and plays a crucial role in providing resources for our islands’ health care system, and safeguards families from the cost of unforeseen medical needs.”
Atalig encourages government employees to take advantage of this enrollment period to ensure each employee and their families have the necessary resources to cover their health care expenses.
