Open enrollment for Iowans purchasing or changing their Affordable Care Act individual health coverage for 2022 will begin on Nov. 1 and run through Jan. 15, the Iowa Insurance Division announced. Iowans shopping for individual coverage who are not covered by an employer plan can now begin previewing sample premium amounts for individual ACA-compliant health insurance plans online. These premium amounts will become official on Nov. 1. "As the ACA's open enrollment season begins, Iowans considering individual plans should talk with a licensed insurance agent to thoroughly research all coverage options to determine the best plan for themselves and their families,” Iowa Insurance Commissioner Doug Ommen said in a release.
