Florida Matters: Year 2 of Enrollment on HealthCare.gov
It's the second year of enrollment for health insurance plans under the federal health law on HealthCare.gov, the website that Floridians, and people in dozens of other states, use to shop for health insurance.
As of Dec. 15, we have passed a key deadline, the deadline to buy a plan to have coverage that starts Jan. 1. But open enrollment runs through Feb. 15, 2015, and we have gathered a panel to talk about what consumers be doing now if they still need to get health insurance coverage to comply with the federal health law known as Obamacare.
Our panel includes Mary Shedden, the editor of Health News Florida at WUSF, and Jodi Ray, the project director for Florida Covering Kids & Families at USF. Ray's navigator team can be reached by phone at (813) 803-0628.
