Alabamians Are Signing Up for Healthcare
Alabamians are signing up for insurance through Alabama’s federally operated insurance exchange. A recent report states that more than 44-thousand Alabamians have used the federal health care law. Officials say, numbers of enrollees have increased since December of 2013 and that 59 percent of those who have signed up in Alabama are women. There was an increase in younger enrollees in January, but slightly more than half of those who have signed up are over 50-years-old. If someone who can afford health insurance doesn’t have coverage in 2014, they may have to pay a fee. Open enrollment ends on March 31st and you won’t be able to get health coverage through the Marketplace until the next annual enrollment period.
