Nearly 44 million Americans are uninsured, and eight out of ten of these are workers and another 38 million have inadequate health insurance. With the costs of healthcare skyrocketing, no one can afford to be without healthcare insurance. Obamacare allows Americans, whose employers don't offer healthcare insurance, access to affordable insurance.
The open enrollment period for Obamacare is Nov. 1 to Dec. 15. Over 11 million Americans enrolled in a marketplace plan during last year's open enrollment. Those on the program must re-enroll during open enrollment, even if they want to keep the same plan. For those happy with their current plan, Open Enrollment is also a good time to make updates to their plan, such as adding or removing dependents.
For those who simply cannot afford healthcare insurance, there are free clinics available in Cedar Rapids; The Community Health Center and His Hands Minsitry. (The websites are below for hours and other important information.)
