Affordable Care Act
Insurance is required for most individuals in 2021. Open enrollment in the Marketplace starts on November 1 and ends on December 15.
A primary goal of the Affordable Care Act is to help uninsured Americans gain access to quality, affordable health care. Central to this goal is the creation of the Health Insurance Marketplace. Through the Marketplace, eligible Americans will be able to enroll in an affordable health plan to get coverage that starts as early as January.
