    Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment Starts Nov. 1

    Open enrollment starts November 1 in the Health Insurance Marketplace. (Published Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017)

    Open enrollment starts Nov. 1 in the Health Insurance Marketplace.

    This enrollment period is shorter than the previous ones at just 45 days.

    Those who don't enroll for health insurance by Dec. 15 will need to experience a qualifying life event to sign up. That's something like losing a job or getting married.

    The cost of insurance will likely be higher this time around, now that the cost-sharing reduction subsidies have been cut.
