Affordable Care Act

For those in the US for whom it may be of interest:

The official Affordable Care Act website. Go there and pick your state to see your options for health insurance.

For 2014, the Open Enrollment Period is October 1, 2013–March 31, 2014. Coverage starts as soon as January 1, 2014.

There have been technical glitches reported, and you may not be able to purchase immediately. However, I'm betting that those technical issues will be fixed by the time coverage is due to begin.

Edit - One important note about the Health Insurance Marketplace:

"You can buy a health plan inside or outside the Marketplace. But the only way to get lower costs based on your income...on your monthly premiums or out-of-pocket costs is to buy a plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace." - Can I buy health insurance outside the Health Insurance Marketplace?

So, it maybe be worth it to check out options even if you already have coverage.
