Implementation of the Affordable Care Act: The Uninsured in Herkimer and Oneida Counties

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Affordable Care Act, will soon be ramping up. According to the federal government's website, there are three particularly important dates to pay attention to in the near future. These dates are:
  • October 1, 2013: When the insurance marketplace open enrollment starts
  • January 1, 2014: When health coverage can start
  • March 31, 2014: When the open enrollment period ends
