Stay with your present plan. If you are happy with it, and it still fits your needs your plan will roll over into the new year.
Check out other health plans. If your needs change, remember it is zip code and provider list that determines your plan choices.

Concierge Options. Clinics such as the Canby Clinic offer care for a monthly fee. However, be sure to inquire about major medical coverage.
Short Term Medical. Covers major medical but coverage is limited to a 90-day windows i.e. in between jobs.
The holidays are the time we see family and friends. However, Covid requires we make other plans when and where possible. Fortunately, we have the tools to reach out to each other i.e. phone, mail, email, Zoom, and if needed, in-office appointments with mask and distancing required.
Take care everyone of yourself and each other.
