Question: When Can I buy Affordable Care Act Obamacare health insurance?
The Affordable Care Act / Obamacare Marketplace open enrollment is from October 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. For future years, the open enrollment will be from October 15 to December 7.
Most people will only be able to use the Affordable Care Act Marketplace during Open Enrollment. But, if you experience certain qualifying events at other times during the year, you may be able to buy health insurance through the Marketplace at that time. This is called a Special Enrollment Period.
