Open enrollment for the individual health insurance marketplace opens Sunday. Sign up by Dec. 15.

Coverage begins Jan. 1, 2021, and will be valid throughout the year regardless of political efforts to alter the Affordable Care Act.

The National Coverage Coalition offers an online tool to connect you with free enrollment help. Or call the Patient Advocate Foundation at 800-532-5274. Both groups can help you determine whether you’re eligible for financial assistance for marketplace insurance costs.
