If you have friends or family who need health care coverage, tell them that their chance is here, with the open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).


What is open enrollment?


It’s the period when you can enroll for 2017 health plans through your state’s Health Insurance Marketplace. Don’t miss the deadline! The annual open enrollment period is between November 1, 2016, and January 31, 2017, only.


Who is this for?


Anyone who doesn’t have health care coverage and is eligible, or people who would like to change their existing health plan. Your friends or family can shop for a 2017 plan that’s right for them by visiting their state’s Health Insurance Marketplace.


Is there financial help?


Yes, for those who qualify. People can find out if they qualify on their state’s Health Insurance Marketplace.


Where can my friends or family learn more about the ACA, health care reform, or the Marketplaces?
