The Money Drill 08: What You Need to Know About Health Care Open Enrollment

Welcome to The Money Drill! This is the podcast where we make money matters understandable so you can command your own financial future.

This episode continues a series about health insurance. Sean Scaturro, director of life and health advice at USAA, joins host JJ Montanaro to explain what you need to know about health insurance open enrollment, which runs Nov. 1 through Jan. 31.

Find out what happens if you miss the enrollment window and whether you could qualify for a special enrollment period. And military members, Scaturro explains, often have more options than civilians.

Health care planning goes beyond the open enrollment period though. Learn how a health savings account can benefit you now and in the future.
