The Marketplace was designed to assist people with increasing access to insurance that is cost effective with comprehensive coverage. Major reforms in this law include that most U.S. citizens and legal residents are required to have health insurance and if not covered, Americans could be financially penalized.
The open enrollment begins October 1, 2013 and ends March 31, 2014. Coverage for individuals who sign up during open enrollment begins January 1, 2014. Since Texas is federally facilitated, details about insurance plan options will not be available until late summer.
