Fact: Not the case at all. You can still enroll for health insurance from a health insurance exchange, or directly with an insurer like PacificSource. You just need to enroll before March 31. Here are two deadlines to mark on your calendar:

January 15: The deadline to enroll for insurance and have your coverage start on February 1.

March 31: The deadline to enroll for insurance and avoid a tax penalty. If you wait until March 31, your health insurance will kick in on May 1.
