intercst:"There is an open enrollment period. You can't just sign up at any random time during the year and get health coverage under Obamacare.

If you don't buy a policy by March 31, 2014, you're locked out until Jan 1, 2015. The open enrollment period for 2015 coverage is Oct 15, 2014 to Dec 07, 2014."


I've been told that if you move to a state with it's own exchange....you get to sign up in that state ....no 'enrollment' period required....

Obviously, with many signing up for HMOs that limit areas of practice...heck, in CA, the plans are BY COUNTY...... if you move...you
are going to have to be able to change plans.....or get one in the first place.......

I'm sure the geniuses in DC figured that out.

If you are on a local HMO and move.....what then? You get no coverage until you can 'sign up again' in a different state or in the case of CA, a different county?

I'd venture that more than half the plans don't transfer....maybe NONE of them transfer across state lines....

Bfut the genius in the WH must have a fix....or one coming after fix number 857 is implemented sometime next July.....(of some year).
