 Horizon wants to remind brokers that the conversion deadline for April 1, 2018 renewing groups or off anniversary conversions is Friday 3/23/18 at 12:00 noon. Any groups that are submitted after this deadline will be moved to a 4/1/18 effective date.  Horizon has determined that if a group is accepting their existing ACA plan renewal, no paperwork is necessary.  Only if a group is converting to a completely different ACA plan alternative or if they are moving from a pre-ACA plan to an ACA plan would conversion paperwork be necessary. It is imperative that complete paperwork as mandated above be submitted in as timely a manner as possible.  Conversions without all required documentation or submitted after deadline face the risk of losing their requested conversion date and being moved to the next month.
