Obamacare, also referred to as an ACA compliant plan is no longer available for enrollment unless you live in WA, NY, CA, MA, or DC or have a qualifying life event. Trumpcare plans are currently being promoted by a number of marketing and insurance companies. However, you need to understand that officially there is no such thing as Trumpcare or Trumpcare plans. When marketing and insurance companies refer to Trumpcare they mean health insurance plans that are alternatives to plans that satisfy regulations created by the ACA or what is better known as Obamacare.
There have been several attempts since President Trump took office in January to replace and repeal the ACA or Obamacare. However, after the failing at the last effort for any right wing lawmaker to gain any traction earlier this fall, Obamacare remains the law of the land. Open enrollment for 2018 is still available, however, Trumpcare has shortened the enrollment period. For 2018 you will have from November 1 to December 15 to purchase healthcare insurance from the private market including non job and non government based health insurance options.
The yearly open enrollment always has caused a great deal of confusion for millions of people and it is going to be even more confusing in 2018 as some states have different deadlines. Regardless of what the government deadline is stating some states including the District of Columbia created their own insurance marketplaces under Obamacare and have decided to extend the open enrollment deadline to afford consumers more time.
