Update: Healthcare.gov has announced an extension until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, December 17 (2:59 a.m. Friday Eastern time) to purchase or make changes to coverage beginning on January 1, 2016. If your state has its own marketplace, visit its website for information on state extensions.

With the holidays in full swing, don’t forget to add health insurance to your shopping list. There are still a few weeks left to enroll in Marketplace health insurance if you don’t already have health insurance or to change your current plan for January 1, 2016 coverage.

TurboTax is here to help you understand your health insurance enrollment options and how the Affordable Care Act impacts you and your taxes. Check out our guide to the Marketplace for information and tools to help you pick the best option for you and your family. There is also Enroll America’s Get Covered Connector to help you find local help with your health insurance application.

Enroll by December 16 so that you can get covered and check 2016 health insurance off your list!
