Remember, the health law has not been repealed, so the Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land. HealthCare.gov has new features meant to make it more user-friendly, and the call center is fully staffed. Most Americans are still required to get health insurance, and they can find plans - including some generous subsidies - through state-based marketplaces or exchanges, including HealthCare.gov.

Between 2016 and 2017, an additional 386,052 New Yorkers signed up for health insurance through the ACA, according to the city. The 2018 filing season will be the first time that the IRS will not accept tax returns that lack coverage information, the agency announced last week. Marketplace plans are labeled bronze, silver, gold or platinum, with platinum plans being the most generous and generally charging the highest premiums. Last year, you had until after the holidays to sign up. Past year was a banner one for the program: 12.2 million Americans enrolled, including 549,158 from North Carolina (fourth most in the country), and 149,744 in the Triangle.
