My son has a new job and will not have health insurance coverage until Feb 1. What does he have to do?

The new health care reform/ Affordable Care Act goes into effect on January 1, 2014.  You can apply for Affordable Care Act/Obamacare starting on October 1, 2013 but the new insurance will NOT be effective until January 1, 2014.

If you need coverage from now to when the new insurance kicks in, your only alternative is to apply for short term private health insurance from now until December 31.
