If you need affordable healthcare, now is the time to act. Right now is the open enrollment period for President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA).

To enroll and purchase health insurance for you and your family, including children up to the age of 26, through the Health Insurance Marketplace go online to www.HealthCare.gov. If you do not already have health insurance, you must enroll by February 15, 2015 or face a tax penalty. For coverage that begins on January 1, 2015, you must enroll by December 15, 2014.

As of January 2014, if you did not have some form of health insurance you will pay a fee on your 2014 tax returns. The fee for having health insurance in 2014 is $95 per person. That fee will continue to increase to $695 per person by 2016.

For more information, visit www.HealthCare.gov.

Here’s to a healthy you in 2015.
