It is that time of year for you to head to the insurance marketplace if you need to update your health care coverage information or apply for new health care coverage. The deadline to enroll through healthcare.gov is December 15, 2018. Open enrollment happens once a year under the Affordable Care Act.

Former President Barack Obama took to social media today to urge everyone to sign up before December 15th!

Health care experts say the Arizona marketplace has expanded since its 2018 offerings for people in the big cities i.e. Tucson, Phoenix, but in the remaining 15 Arizona counties, we are once again limited to plans from just one provider for 2019.

Some brokers are selling short term health plans which cost less, but provide much lower levels of coverage than ACA plans which by law must provide coverage.

Tucker says you should compare any plan you are considering to those offered on the ACA marketplace website. For no-cost help to find and choose a plan that works best for you go to coverAZ.org.
