Make Sure You’re Covered in 2016

Although open enrollment is November 1, 2015, to January 31, 2016, you must enroll by December 17, 2015, to make sure you’re covered for the entire year. If you miss the December deadline, you’ll have to go without a health plan for at least a month.

Here’s more information on open enrollment deadlines for ACA plans:
