Affordable Health Care Coverage

Print

The Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment is over, but you can still get 2017 health coverage if you qualify for a special enrollment for certain life changes such as getting married, having a baby, losing other coverage or moving.    

If you do not have health insurance coverage for the remainder of 2017 you will risk having to pay a penalty fee next year for the portion of this year that you do not have coverage. The fee for people who did not have coverage in 2016 is $695 per person or 2.5% of your household income – whichever is higher.

Open enrollment for 2018 starts November 15th.  Coverage can start as early as January 1, 2018.  If you don't enroll in a 2017 health insurance plan by January 31, 2017, you cannot enroll in a health insurance plan for 2018 unless you qualify for a special enrollment period.  If you currently get coverage through a Health Insurance Marketplace plan, come in during open enrollment to see your 2018 plan options.
