Open enrollment on the healthcare marketplace begins on November 1 and lasts until December 15 on healthcare.gov.
Beat the rush and sign up early. No matter if this is your first time getting covered or you are returning to compare plans or find a more affordable plan, you must take action by December 15.
Coverage through the Affordable Care Act may be more affordable than you think, because you may be eligible for financial help. In 2016, most people qualified for financial help, which meant that most people found health insurance premiums between $50 and $100 per month.
If you decide not to have health insurance, you may have to pay a penalty of $695 if you are not covered.
