With deadline looming, Affordable Care Act enrollment is down in Missouri, Kansas

The Deadline to Sign Up for Obamacare Is Tomorrow. Here's What's New and Why You Should Start Today

The last day you can enroll for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act is Saturday, December 15, and so far it looks like fewer Iowans have enrolled this year than last.

Those who already signed up or were automatically re-enrolled might still be getting a lot of emails, and those will continue until the official deadline: Saturday.

We are encouraging consumers who need health insurance to join the millions of people who have gone to HealthCare.gov and found health insurance.

In spite of that, so far 95,000 people have signed up in CT.

The health care law still faces legal challenges, A conservative federal judge in Texas ruled the Affordable Care Act "invalid" Friday on the eve of the sign-up deadline for next year.

But the administration maintained those parts of the law were severable and the rest of the Affordable Care Act could remain in place.

NO PENALTY FOR BEING UNINSURED The GOP-led Congress repealed the fine for being uninsured, effective this January 1.

The growing number of people renewing and signing up this week has accelerated by the day.

The group estimates 146,000 South Carolinians are eligible for insurance plans that would carry no premiums next year.

The Trump administration said in June that it would not defend several important provisions of Obamacare in court.

The Department of Health and Human Services said the deadline applies to those who do not have health insurance coverage, or who would like to change what they now have.

"If this bad ruling is upheld in the higher courts", Schumer said on Twitter, "it will be a disaster for tens of millions of American families, especially for people with pre-existing conditions".
