The 2018 deadline to enroll in a health care plan is December 15! Go to to get covered.

After the Trump Administration slashed the budget for outreach and advertising, enrollment is down about 11 percent compared to last year. We need your help to make sure that young people know it’s their last chance to get covered.

We know that young people care about getting affordable coverage and the good news is that most can find comprehensive plans that cover key services young people need, like birth control and mental health services, for as low as a few dollars a month. If you—or your friends and family—need health insurance, go to to get covered.

You can enroll in or change 2019 Marketplace health insurance right now. The 2019 Open Enrollment Period runs from Thursday, November 1, 2018, to Saturday, December 15, 2018.

  • November 1, 2018: Open Enrollment started—first day to enroll, re-enroll, or change a 2019 insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
  • December 15, 2018: Last day to enroll in or change plans for 2019 coverage. After this date, you can enroll or change plans only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
  • January 1, 2019: 2019 coverage starts, if you’ve paid your first premium.
