Open enrollment for 2015 health insurance is hereHere it is, the big day! Welcome to the 2015 open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act!

The Affordable Care Act’s nationwide 2015 open enrollment period began November 15, 2014 and is scheduled to continue through February 15, 2015.

Outside of open enrollment, you typically need to experience a qualifying life event (marriage, the birth of a child, etc.) before you can buy coverage on your own.

For many of us, this means that open enrollment may be our only chance to apply for premium subsidies and enroll in the major medical individual and family health insurance coverage we need for 2015.
