Open Enrollment. Affordable Care Act.
What does it all mean?
Could you use a crash course on today's health insurance?
The Affordable Care Act is still in effect. You may be wondering what options you have for health plans—whether your budget can handle them—even what supplemental plans like Vision or Accident coverage you might need.
We're happy to help you sort out the key facts.
(And good news—we got them down to this one page!)
Affordable Care (F)Acts.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted in 2010 to make health insurance available to every American. Key highlights:
Insurers can no longer:
- reject you for having a pre-existing condition
- put lifetime limits on coverage
- withdraw your coverage just because you're sick
If you're shopping for individual health insurance that protects you from a potential tax penalty under the ACA, you're required to have a health plan that covers these basics:
- emergency care
- RX drugs
- maternity and newborn care
- lab services

Decoding Open Enrollment
The Affordable Care Act established a specific time period when you can enroll in health insurance without a qualifying life event. (We'll come back to that!) That's Open Enrollment.
Open Enrollment for 2018 health insurance was Nov. 1, 2017 through Dec. 15, 2017.
Good news! If you live in certain states, your Open Enrollment period has been extended:
- California – January 31
- District of Columbia – January 31
- Massachusetts – January 23
- New York – January 31
Outside of Open Enrollment, you can still enroll in health insurance as long as you've had a life changing event including:
- losing coverage
- changing your household income
- moving to another county or zip code
- getting married
- losing dependent status
- getting divorced or separated
- having a baby or adopting a child
- changing immigration status
