November 1 marked the start of open enrollment to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Residents of Florida, along with three dozen other states can shop for plans online at healthcare.gov through the end of January. Florida residents led in enrollment last year with about 1.6 million sign ups. ACA navigators are already working to reach more people this year and get them signed up for coverage.
Open enrollment for "Obamacare health insurance plans" opened Sunday. Federal health officials say their goal is to sign up one million people between now and the end of January. But as Lottie Watts with Health News Florida reports, health officials say that could be tough.
Open enrollment on HealthCare.gov started Sunday, and federal health officials expect the third year of open enrollment to be more challenging than in previous years.
