2018 Healthcare.gov Open Enrollment Deadline Dec 15th
On November 1, 2017, open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act began. It is very important that individuals/families who are not covered by healthcare plans by their employers, consider purchasing a plan through HealthCare.gov. You should act fast because the deadline is December 15, 2017.
Although healthcare has been the subject of a lot of political debates lately, the ACA is still in affect, which means all Americans can take advantage of the marketplace and will be subject to penalties for failure to have health insurance.
As in prior years, you can enroll through HealthCare.gov, and the site can direct you to local licensed insurance agents and state marketplaces for further assistance. They have also put together a Marketplace Application Checklist so you know what to have ready when you plan to enroll.
