INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Thursday is the deadline to sign up for the coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
If you sign up or continue coverage under Obamacare, your next year of coverage will start on Jan. 1, 2017.
If you miss Thursday’s deadline, you can still enroll through Jan. 30, but you won’t begin until Feb. 1.
The White House is encouraging people to sign up by Thursday so they don’t have a gap in coverage.
The Department of Health and Human Services said just over 4 million people have selected policies for 2017 through healthcare.gov, as of Dec. 10.
