2017 Open Enrollment Date 開放期
The Open Enrollment period for 2017 Obamacare health insurance has been official announced as 11/01/2016 to 01/31/2017. If you want to apply or change your coverage for 2017, you can do it starting 11/01/2016 and before the last day 1/31/2017 of the open period. Also, in order to have coverage that begins on 01/10/2017, you need to complete your application before 12/15/2016. If you enroll after the 15th of the month, you’ll have to wait until the month after that for your coverage to start. So, for example, if you enroll on 01/16/17, your coverage would start on 03/01/17. If you miss this window you will have to wait for next open in November 2017 unless you have a special “qualified event”.
