Open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance marketplace began on November 1.

Navigators are in place to help people find out if they are eligible for financial assistance and choose the plan that’s best for them.

According to a press release from the office of U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, 2.7 million Floridians enrolled in Obamacare health insurance for 2022. It was 2.1 million last year.
