What do I need to do now?
Visit eHealth ASAP. It’s never too early to start doing research, and eHealth has great information — even if you’re not ready to enroll just yet. Make sure you’re set by mid-February. Open enrollment for health insurance ends nationwide on Feb. 15, 2015, and all U.S. citizens legally need to be covered to avoid incurring a tax penalty.
Wait. What’s a health insurance marketplace?
It’s a way to easily research and buy health insurance. Think Amazon.com: a website with the broadest collection of options, where you can do research before ultimately making a purchase. Except instead of buying pajamas, you’re getting health insurance.
