LITTLE ROCK - The deadline to enroll in health care under the Affordable Care Act is tomorrow, Friday December 15th. After a shortened enrollment period -- just six weeks compared to last year's twelve -- the final hour to sign up for healthcare through the HealthCare.Gov website is midnight Friday Pacific Time.
"I want to encourage anyone who has not gone online to enroll in a health care plan to check out HealthCare.Gov today," Chairman of the Democratic Party of Arkansas Michael John Gray said. "Plans are cheaper than you'd think. We've already seen the sign-up numbers here in Arkansas increase and as a result healthcare coverage prices go down."
KNWA reported at the end of last week that Arkansas' ACA enrollment numbers are up 28%. December 15th is the final deadline to sign up for healthcare coverage through https://www.healthcare.gov/.
"4.7 million Americans have completed applications already, proof positive that families across the country believe healthcare coverage is of paramount importance," Gray said.
