AEP Ends Wednesday, December 7, 2022


Important information about the last days of AEP and submitting enrollment applications

The following tips will help ensure your hard work this AEP pays off and your applications are processed correctly, including those submitted on Wednesday, December 7, 2022.

  • AEP application submission deadline: ALL applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 pm on December 7, 2022.

  • Faxing Applications:  If faxing the application, remember to keep a copy of your successful fax transmittal as confirmation of submission.
