Affordable Care Act

Open Enrollment for 2018 Coverage

  • Begins November 1, 2017
  • Ends December 15, 2017
  • Coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2018 if you apply by December 15, 2017

IMPORTANT: 2018 Open Enrollment is shorter than in previous years

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. Plans sold during Open Enrollment start January 1, 2018.

Still need 2017 coverage?

After January 31, 2017, you can enroll in a 2017 insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace only if you have a life event that qualifies you for a Special Enrollment Period.
