I am feeling very optimistic this open enrollment period. Optimistic that there will be a higher number of health care sign-ups in the Health Insurance Marketplace, resulting in more people receiving access to health coverage. An essential day this open enrollment season is Dec. 15 because it is the last day to sign up for a health plan in order to receive coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2015.
“Sign-up runs through mid-February, but anyone who wants to get a health plan that starts Jan. 1 needs to enroll by midnight PST on Dec. 15. And anyone who was covered under Obamacare this year should select a new plan by that day, or they will be automatically re-enrolled and may face higher costs.”
