    5. Open enrollment is only 45 days this year

    Open enrollment for 2018 ACA plans will last for six weeks, from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15, compared to three months under the Obama administration.

    "My concern is that people don't get their act together or don't realize the enrollment period is shorter until it's too late," said Megan Foster Friedman, an analyst for the Center for Healthcare Reform and Transformation, an Ann Arbor think tank.

    Dizzy Warren, of Enroll Michigan, echoed those concerns, saying a recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that a majority of Americans were unaware that the ACA open enrollment period has been shortened.

    Moreover, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has announced it will take down the healthcare.gov website for 12 hours almost every Sunday for website maintenance.

    Like DT is not trying to ruin the ACA by halving the time to enroll and not advertising it. The UP and Northern Mi will be hurt the most, ironically its those areas that are 99.9% white and voted for DT.

    Too funny!

    Most companies only give you 30 days. What’s the problem here?

    Quit changing the subject, those on the ACA work, oh and the fine is still in effect.

    One might think the new Pres is thinking this is his money, and we all know how he treats employees. Like crap.

    Shouldn't responsible adults know these things? Do they need a reminder note, or a personal call?

    Why can't we just buy HC Insurance when ever we want?

    The ACA is a turd, it needs to be flushed, not polished.

    When the Trumptards Donald surround himself hear about this, they'll talk him into shrinking that down to a 24 hour enrollment period.

    And of course, they won't spend a penny to advertise it and will make sure the website is down.

    Can't hardly wait to see what my awesome unsubsidized ACA-complient policy is gonna cost me when i talk to my agent next week. :rolleyes:
