Health insurance companies are already making plans to start selling individual policies to the public in April.
But as many states start accepting individual insurance plans, the Obama administration has not yet set an official date for the coverage to begin.
What to know if you qualify for a plan: Coverage is expected to start April 1.
If you qualify, you’ll need to wait until the end of April to enroll.
Coverage for individuals is scheduled to start in October.
To apply for a policy: Visit the Obamacare website and click on the individual coverage tab.
On the first page of the page, click on “Apply for a Health Insurance Policy.”
Make sure that you’re eligible to apply for coverage in your state.
You can also contact your state’s insurance commissioner to find out more about your state and what you need before applying.
If your state doesn’t have an online application, you can use a smartphone application called the Health Insurer Application (HIA).
To find a health insurance company in your area: Click here to find a local health insurance agent.
You’ll need the state’s individual health insurance carrier number (IHIN) or its regional office number (RIN).
This is the same number that’s assigned to the regional office.
You may need to change your IHIN number to a different number if your state has multiple regional offices.
For example, if your city has three regional offices, you may need a different IHIP number.
In your state, go to HealthCare.gov and select “Get Insurance.”
Then, click “Apply Now.”
