Deadline looms to get insured, avoid penalties

A major deadline looms for those Texans who want to get health insurance this year through the new ACA Marketplace. Open enrollment for plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) ends on March 31. Those who fail to get coverage by then will have to wait until mid-November for another chance to enroll, warned Trey Berndt with AARP Texas. “People should know that if they enroll before March 15, the coverage can start by April 1, and if they enroll by the March 31 deadline, the coverage will start May 1. What AARP hopes is that everybody who hasn’t gotten insured will go shop the marketplace now.”
