MiamiHerald / Open enrollment for Affordable Care Act coverage begins Wednesday.
The law known as Obamacare is still in effect. But unlike past years, consumers will have fewer days to sign up, and they will be automatically re-enrolled in a plan if they do not select one by the deadline of Dec. 15 – with no option to change afterward.
Premiums in Florida rose by an average of 45 percent for 2018, but consumers with subsidized coverage may find better deals for 2018 .
“One of the things we want to make sure is that consumers know it is possible that they can see some better deals this year,” said Jodi Ray, project director of Florida Covering Kids & Families, a navigator group that helps Floridians enroll for ACA coverage.
