AUSTIN, Texas, October 06, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading up to the annual Open Enrollment Period that starts November 1, Bright HealthCare announced its healthcare plan options for individuals and families living in Houston, Dallas and Austin, TX. This is the first time Bright HealthCare will offer plans in Texas. Plan offerings will include both on- and off-exchange individual and family insurance products.
