Buying health insurance

Under the Affordable Care Act, almost all Americans must have health insurance coverage in 2014. The online insurance exchange HealthCare.gov will stay open for enrollment through March 31.

But state officials say Utahns who think they might qualify for Medicaid should consider applying directly through Utah’s Department of Workforce Services at www.jobs.utah.gov.
