Millions of Americans can still get quality, affordable care. This year, 8 in 10 shoppers can find a plan for less than $75 per month.

Since Open Enrollment for health care began on November 1, enrollment has surged across the country. Over 600,000 people selected a plan through HealthCare.gov, the federal marketplace, in the first week of Open Enrollment. In Washington State’s Exchange, website traffic on Washington HealthPlanFinder increased 24% and enrollments increased by 50% over the same period last year.

Open Enrollment continues until January 15 but people must sign up by December 15 for coverage beginning on January 1.


Open Enrollment for off-Exchange plans ends December 15. Read more about why you should enroll sooner rather than later on Northwest Health Law Advocates blog.
