Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment Begins November 1

If you haven't applied for insurance on HealthCare.gov before, find out what you need to know about the Health Insurance Marketplace (sometimes known as the health insurance "exchange"). The 2018 Open Enrollment Period runs from November 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017. This is a shorter enrollment period than previous years, so it's important to act quickly. If you don't act by December 15, you can't get 2018 coverage unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Visit Healthcare.gov to see if you're eligible to use the Marketplace, and dates and deadlines for 2018 health insurance
