The 2016 Marketplace Open Enrollment period began November 1, 2015 and will continue through January 31, 2016. Health coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2016 for consumers who sign up by December 15, 2015. Consumers who have already received health coverage through the Marketplace should come back to shop and review their coverage options by December 15, 2015 as new, better and more affordable plans may be available for them in 2016.
Through the Affordable Care Act, more accessible, affordable, quality health care is available to millions of Americans. Please check out this special video from Acting Administrator Jim Macrae with information about Open Enrollment and strategies you can use to provide Marketplace outreach and education in your community. Information and additional resources are available at HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov.
