Open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act begins Nov. 1 and runs through Dec. 15. You can access information regarding this program through https://www.healthcare.gov to see if you qualify.

I have talked to many people who believe that this program was repealed. It has not been repealed. To date, I have not seen nor heard of any alerts from the federal or state governments through the media to provide citizens with this information.

Perhaps if the state and federal governments would make the path to enrollment more apparent for those who would benefit, there would be fewer citizens in need of Medicaid expansion (Proposition 3) and our tax dollars could be put to better use serving those truly in need.
