Obamacare deadline today for health insurance
Today is the deadline for signing up for Obamacare health insurance plans with coverage starting on January 1. Federal officials have been making a final push to increase the number of signups. Consumers can still sign up for a health insurance plan until January 31, but coverage for these plans will begin later in the year. In Nebraska, 36.7 percent of those eligible for Obamacare are enrolled in the program. The map below shows how other U.S. states compare.
In early December, the White House said President Barack Obama would veto a U.S. Senate amendment that would repeal parts of Obama’s 2010 health care reform law, known as Obamacare.
The amendment would result in millions of Americans remaining uninsured or losing the health insurance they have today, the White House said in a statement. This graphic shows the estimated percentage of Americans without healthcare coverage.
