The Affordable Care Act – Sign Up Deadline Is March 31

The ACA enrollment deadline is March 31st and you’re not alone if you’re still trying to make sense of it all.

The fact is, without a health plan, you will pay the price in more ways than one.  First in the form of a penalty – $95 OR 1% of your income – whichever is greater. And second, if you do incur any medical expenses, you’re footing the bill for those, too. Ouch.

Did you know that with an ACA individual health plan, many routine services are now covered at no cost to you? Everything from check-ups to immunizations and flu shots to birth control to pediatric vision and dental are all now covered at 100 percent.

We have been hearing how the Affordable Care Act provides people with a subsidy, or financial assistance, on health insurance. In Washington State, over half of uninsured residents may qualify for financial assistance on their health plan.

If you’ve waited until now to buy your plan, don’t worry. With just a little prep – like having your financial, current insurance and medical information at the ready, you can really streamline the enrollment process. Check out our sponsor’s page at
