Affordable Care Act Health Coverage Sign up deadline Saturday

Health insurance sign-ups for the Affordable Care Act are down with just a few days left to enroll in most states, even though premiums are stable, consumers have more choice, and millions of uninsured people can still get financial help.

Between November 1, when open enrollment began, and December 1, more than 55,000 Arizona consumers had selected a plan on HealthCare.gov.

Established under the ACA in 2013, the Health Insurance Marketplace is an aggregation of plans where a person not insured by other means, such as an employer, Medicaid or the Veterans Administration, can purchase private insurance.

But federal data shows the average number of people signing-up daily, is down more than 9%.

If you haven't gotten enrolled for your health care plan through the Affordable Care Act, you aren't the only one.

This is the first enrollment period without the individual mandate, which penalized people on their tax returns who did not buy health insurance. A few states that run their own health care websites have later deadlines. But so far sign-ups have been lagging when compared to previous year.

The new numbers suggest there may be less demand for government-subsidized insurance during a time of strong economic growth.

According to data from CMS, most West Virginians are choosing silver level plans, and 91 percent of those silver plan buyers qualified for some form of a tax credit.

Starting on January 1, there will no longer will be a tax penalty for not having health insurance.

Roughly 11 million Americans have individual or family plans through healthcare.gov or their state exchange, and if you're one of them and you do nothing, you'll be automatically renewed into your current health plan. The Justice Department appealed both rulings.

"Today's ruling is an assault on 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions, on the 20 million Americans who rely on the ACA for health care, and on America's faithful progress toward affordable health care for all Americans,"Becerra said in a news release".

Under the law's community rating provision, insurers are not allowed to set premiums based on a person's health history.
