It is open enrollment time. From now until February 15, 2015, people can enroll or change health insurance plans available through the Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace. People who enrolled in the Affordable Care Act insurance plans through the Marketplace last year will NEED TO RE-ENROLL this year to keep the insurance. Some premium rates have increased, but there are new low-cost alternatives available.  Residents must enroll by December 15, 2014 in order for coverage to begin on January 1, 2015.
