SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE!
In light of what happened last night, I wanted to make sure everyone knows:
If you get your health coverage via the Affordable Care Act, and you enroll in a Qualifying Health Plan for 2017 by the end of the current Open Enrollment period (January 31, 2017), you will have coverage through the end of calendar year 2017. The GOP will probably prioritize repealing the Act, so who knows what happens for 2018, but there are laws in place which ensure that you’ll keep your 2017 coverage.
If your situation dictates, PLEASE make sure you’re enrolled in a QHP before the end of Open Enrollment.
Update: In order to ensure you’e covered throughout 2017, make sure you’re enrolled by DECEMBER 15, 2016
