Health insurance has been unaffordable for many people for a long time. Now that’s changing, and medical coverage is going to be a requirement. This will ensure that all people in the US can get treatment for emergencies and chronic conditions. For the Covered California program, open enrollment will start on October 1st. This will allow people to get signed up in time to meet the January 1, 2014 deadline for having health insurance. Those who choose not to get insurance will have to pay a penalty on their taxes.

You can get affordable coverage, and it’s a good idea to know what plan you want before enrollment starts. By taking to an agent, you can get information on all the choices and options you have. That really helps you to pick out something that will work for you and that you can afford. Some people already have insurance, but not all plans are acceptable under Obamacare, so if you don’t have coverage or yours has to change, now is the time to start thinking about your options.
