Those considering options for purchasing insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace, which was created under the federal Affordable Care Act, will find comprehensive information on a newly revised website developed by Penn State Extension. The Health Insurance Marketplace is a unique opportunity for previously uninsured consumers, small businesses and others to shop for health insurance and compare plans at one location. The open enrollment period for 2016 began November 1 and runs to December 31, with coverage beginning as early as January 1. Designed to be a one-stop resource, the Penn State Extension Health Insurance Literacy website provides extensive resources that are just a keystroke or phone call away for Pennsylvania shoppers who want to do their homework before deciding which policy to buy.
