This fall marks the ninth open enrollment season for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces. The 2022 open enrollment period begins on November 1, 2021 in all states; it extends through January 15, 2022 in the 33 states that use HealthCare.gov and several of the 18 states with state-based marketplaces. The latter includes Kentucky, Maine, and New Mexico, which newly opened their own marketplaces for 2022. While consumers can enroll through mid-January, those that want health insurance that begins on January 1, 2022 must enroll by December 15, 2021.
