The first major deadline for the Affordable Care Act is quickly approaching. Monday, December 23 is the deadline to enroll for health insurance coverage if you want your insurance to take effect on January 1. Some states may have extended the deadline. Please click here to go to the federal health care website. Find the health exchange website for your state here. Take a look at the Cancer Insurance Checklist to help you compare different plans. This is a great tool to help you shop for insurance on your state’s Health Insurance Marketplace if you have cancer, a history of cancer, or are at risk for cancer. BCAN is a supporting organization of the Cancer Insurance Checklist.
