Statewide Iowa — Iowans are now able to open enroll under the Affordable Care Act Marketplace.
Federal data shows more than 72,000 Iowans enrolled in health care plans through the marketplace last year. Iowa Insurance Commissioner Doug Ommen says enrollment in marketplace plans has risen in recent years as more options became available. Ommen says Iowans who haven’t done this before should talk to marketplace navigators or contact the Iowa Insurance Division for help.
He says Iowans who are interested in enrolling in a plan shouldn’t wait.
Iowans who are interested in signing up for a plan or need help doing so can go to healthcare.gov. Open enrollment opened Tuesday and runs through January 15th.
