Effective January 1, 2014, all individuals have the option to purchase health coverage, regardless of a medical condition. Because of this change in federal policy, there is no longer a need to enroll new individuals in the SD Risk Pool.
We want to assure you the SD Risk Pool will continue to provide health coverage for you and all current enrollees through 2014. Although you currently have coverage with the SD Risk Pool, we are still encouraging you to explore other options for health coverage during Open Enrollment. Please be advised, Risk Pool premiums are projected to increase July 1, 2014.
