For your new health coverage to be effective on Feb. 1, 2015, you must sign up by Thursday, January 15.
Those who enroll by Feb. 15, will get coverage starting March 1, 2015.
People who qualify for Medicaid can sign up at any point during the year.
Some plans are more restrictive than others. Some have higher co-pays and/or deductibles. Be sure to inquire about keeping your doctors, or being able to select from a wide array of providers. If you have existing care providers and want to continue working with those providers, you need to check to ensure they are in the insurer's network.

Regardless of the misleading news items and some media reports, millions of Americans are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act. The Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, says he wants to completely repeal the ACA; yet, in his home state more that 500,000 people have signed up for the ACA. In Kentucky the program is called Kentucky Kynect. The web site through which residents sign up ‘was paid for by a $200-and-some-odd-million grant from the federal government.’ You can read more about that at the link below. We include this information to point out that even some who oppose the ACA recognize its benefits.
