GET READY TO ENROLL
Open enrollment in the health care exchanges, also know as Obamacare, begins today.
Over 90 percent of uninsured millennials will be eligible for free or reduced-cost coverage and nearly 3.5 million young people will be eligible for Medicaid coverage.
More people will qualify for Medicaid in 2014 which provides free or low-cost coverage for some low-income Americans, families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
Why We Should Care
Starting New Years Day, young Americans will have guarantees of coverage for mental health, birth control, and preventative care, and check ups.
You have from October 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014 to enroll in a healthcare plan. Those who chose to opt-out of enrollment will be charged a fine of $95 per adult or 1 percent of household income, whichever is greater.
