If you haven’t signed up for health coverage for the 2016 calendar year already, Sunday is the deadline to avoid stiff fines to be levied in your federal tax return. Sunday’s deadline marks the second and final chance for individuals to get coverage as part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act – also known as Obamacare – or to change their existing coverage for the remainder of the year.
While the majority of Twin States residents get their health insurance through plans offered by their employers, the Affordable Care Act allows residents without coverage to choose a plan that fits their income without fear of rejection.
Individuals in New Hampshire can browse plans by visiting www.healthcare.gov, or by calling 1-800-318-2596.
Over in Vermont, residents should check out www.vermonthealthconnect.gov, or call 1-855-899-9600.
