Enrollment for Affordable Care Act (ACA) began October 1, 2013 for the coverage beginning January 1, 2014. 1. If you apply until December 15, 2013 your coverage would begin on January 1, 2014 but if you apply on December 16 - 31, your coverage would begin on January 16, 2014 (The cycle would follow the same pattern for the following months).
You don't have to wait. Why? Well, beginning January 2014, most people will be required to have public or private health insurance or pay a financial penalty. Also, parents with children who are tax dependents also are responsible for ensuring those children have coverage or they may face penalties.
