The Open Enrollment Period for 2016 health insurance plans on healthcare.gov started Nov. 1 and runs through Jan. 31, 2016. This is a good time to point out some of the changes and offer some advice as you shop for your 2016 health plans.

Anyone who has put together a home budget can tell you that the simplest (in theory) way to save money is to spend less. That applies to healthcare as well. At Blue Cross, we spend 84% of your premiums on actual healthcare, so we can make the biggest impact in controlling premium costs by actually keeping healthcare spending lower.
