The enrollment period for the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace begins today and runs through Dec. 15.

The Affordable Care Act remains in effect for the time being, so the requirement to have health insurance or pay a penalty remains in effect.

Donald Trump HAS ended federal coverage subsidies to insurance companies for some low-income people, but the insurance companies will continue paying them and make up difference in rates for higher income people. The open enrollment time is important. Those with pre-existing health conditions may sign up. That, too, is a requirement of Obamacare that remains in place for the time being.

The enrollment period is shorter — one of several changes aimed at diminishing the program. So hurry.
