Open Enrollment for Obamacare Starts Tomorrow. Here's What You Need to Know S&P: ObamaCare enrollment hurt by Trump uncertainty

One of the most important things to know about signing up for coverage for 2018 through the Affordable Care Act is the dates of open enrollment.

Although a few states that run their own exchanges have longer open-enrollment periods, this year's federal marketplace sign-up period is only half as long as last year's.

Visiting a navigators could cut down on the time it takes to enroll if you're unfamiliar with the system, Serpas said. The Trump administration drastically cut the budget for marketing the marketplaces.

Open enrollment for individual plans on under the Affordable Care Act starts Wednesday.

"There are plans that might have a very low deductible with higher monthly premiums, and some might have very low monthly premiums with a bit higher deductible", Higgins said.

Some 9 million to 10 million people now have private plans through the ACA's government-sponsored markets.

"We saw there were a lot of individuals who were using [city hospitals] who were not insured and that cost millions for taxpayers", she said.

If you have questions about signing up or want to talk through your options, free help is available online or by phone.

The amount of financial help you get is tied to your income and the cost of the silver plans, which offer middle-of-the-road prices and benefits.

Almost 150,000 people bought private plans previous year through private plans through the state exchange and others bought directly from insurers.

In 2016, about $100 million was spent on advertising and 9.2 million people signed up for health coverage through the federal exchange.

And the emails that were sent, according to the Post, were stripped of perhaps their most convincing element, determined by the Obama administration through extensive research: cost savings. Many receive tax subsidies that reduce high premiums. Accordingly, most insurers set premiums for 2018 as if CSRs would not be available, hence the large increases.

"Insurer exits, higher-than-expected premium rate hikes, a series of repeal-and-replace votes, the cancelation of future federal cost-sharing reduction (CSR) subsidies, an executive order on health care, and a recent discussion about a short-term bipartisan fix have all contributed to the uncertainty that has been brewing lately".

His goal in participating in the social media campaign is to help make sure that millions of Americans who aren't already insured understand that they still can get coverage through Healthcare.gov, a source close to Obama said.

The cheapest gold plan will have lower premiums than the least-expensive silver plan in 459 counties next year once subsidies are factored in, Kaiser found.

Many more consumers will be able to enroll in bronze plans and pay nothing each month.
