Deadline is Friday to buy 2018 ACA health coverage

The deadline is here, where to go to sign up with the Affordable Care Act

Through Dec. 9, 4.68 million consumers signed up for the insurance in the 39 states that use the federally run HealthCare.gov website.

The letter warns that the changes could lead to "higher premiums for consumers, particularly those with pre-existing conditions".

The process of helping someone sign-up for a plan takes a full 20 or 30 minutes, Headrick said, and the brokers - who once received a commission for the sign-up and each renewal year - often don't feel they can simply give their time away. In 2017, the percentage of young invincibles enrolled was 27 percent of all enrollees but, according to actuaries, for Obamacare plans to be financially stable, this group should be around 40 percent of enrollees.

Gomez said ACA has been a "very good thing" for those clients who qualify for tax credits that make the insurance more affordable, though not everyone is eligible.

ACA plans sold during open enrollment begin coverage on January 1. Politico, a Washington D.C. -based newspaper reported on November 12, "Defying gloomy predictions, Obamacare enrollment surges ..."

"It's important that people get the message: this may be your last chance to enroll in 2018 health insurance coverage", said eHealth CEO Scott Flanders in a news release.

Baumgarten spoke with Health News Florida about how the Affordable Care Act has shaped Florida's health care market-even as the state chose not to expand Medicaid eligibility.

In spite of all of Trump's sabotage efforts, Obamacare is working. According to the most recent available federal statistics, 802,711 enrollments were tallied in Florida between November 1 and December 2, compared to 678,857 during the same period in 2016. "I don't think it registered with people", Tatum Allsep, executive director at Music Health Alliance, said in an earlier interview with the USA TODAY NETWORK-Tennessee.

The record pace is likely due to awareness that the open enrollment period was cut roughly in half, Ray said.

Politico also quoted Sen.

That order aimed to ease ObamaCare rules and opened up cheaper insurance plans that do not have to meet all of the ObamaCare requirements. Dr. Cassidy pointed out the major reason why more people are deciding not to purchase health plans.

"It really would not be fair to people, particularly if there are technology challenges with the last minute surge as there have been every year", Slavitt said.

"Right now, we're just focused on getting to the end of the week", said Jodi Ray, who oversees statewide outreach at the University of Florida's non-profit Florida Covering Kids & Families program.

"What happens is when you call the marketplace, there's a tier 1 representative who gets on the phone". That brought the total since enrollment started November 1 close to 4.7 million, including 206,000 Pennsylvanians and 139,000 New Jersey residents.
