Health insurance 2022: These 18 states have their own open enrollment periods and websites for signing up for ACA insurance

Everything you need to know if you live in one of them

President Biden has opened the enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act health insurance plans for 2022. You can now enroll in one of these plans until January 15, 2022, at healthcare.gov. However, there are 18 states that have their own insurance marketplaces and their own open enrollment dates.
