Sign-ups pick up in week five of 2018 Obamacare open enrollment

Obamacare signups hit 3.6 million 3.6 million people signed up for ObamaCare plans in one month

The CBS News poll found that 68 percent of Americans said that any tax legislation should not include changes to the Affordable Care Act, as Obamacare is formally known.

Open enrollment ends December 15. That's about 20 percent higher than the comparable period past year.

After repeated failed attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, made into law by President Barack Obama, the Trump administration cut the sign-up period in half.

Buying health insurance through the ACA is advisable if someone doesn't get it through an employer or public program, such as Medicare or Medicaid, Dugger said.

While enrollment numbers are expected to be lower than previous year, there are some factors that may affect the end tally.

With only a week remaining in a shortened enrollment period to purchase health insurance at HealthCare.gov this year, 802,711 Floridians have signed up for coverage - an 18 percent increase from a similar point last year.

Deaconess Hospital and St. Vincent in Evansville have been providers for hundreds of people in the Tri-State for awhile and we're told will continue to be next year for those who need it, and the transition is keeping local health insurance agents busy.

The Affordable Care Act is in place for 2018, and nearly everyone must have health insurance or pay a fee. He works as an Online Marketing Consultant providing web marketing services for attorney SEO firms.
