Consumers in most states only have through Dec. 15 to update or change health insurance plans on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace with changes effective Jan. 1. Those who do not could be automatically enrolled in the same plan or a plan that is similar to the one they have now. and those who do not have health insurance for next year could be subject to penalties under the ACA (depending on whether or not Congress repeals the requirement and, if so, when such a repeal is effectuated).

In 2018, many plans will cost less for individuals who qualify for premium subsidies, and some who have not qualified for subsidies in the past may now qualify.

“It’s always a good idea to have the best information at hand,” said North Dakota Insurance Department Public Information Officer Ashley Kelsch, who added that misleading websites are a problem. “If they are not using www.HealthCare.gov, they should reach out to an insurance agent or to the insurance department for assistance."
