The enrollment window for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act opened on Monday but there are several changes to the law that could impact East Texans.

In April, the Department of Health and Human Services shortened the enrollment period to December 15.

Previously, there were two enrollment periods that lasted through January.

Also, experts are predicting a rise in premiums this year due to an executive order issued by President Trump that cut off subsidies to insurance companies.
