Health Care & Health Insurance Reform

Laws like the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have changed the way health insurance is provided. The ACA was passed in 2010 to ensure all Americans have access to affordable insurance. It offers more options, discounts and broader Medicaid coverage to more people. If you’re already insured under your employer, it shouldn’t affect you.

You can buy individual or family plans through a health insurance exchange during a yearly enrollment period. Open enrollment begins November 1, 2018 and ends December 15, 2018. For Medicare Advantage plans, open enrollment is October 15, 2018 through December 7, 2018.

Individuals that reside or move in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria will be eligible for a special enrollment period that extends the 2018 Annual Open Enrollment Period through December 31, 2017. These individuals may contact the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596to request enrollment using this special enrollment period after December 15th through December 31st of 2017.
