New York Times: Health Insurance New York Times: Sign-Ups Begin: Some Assistance Recommended
It’s time to think health insurance. There’s a sentence many Americans will dread reading. Picking the right plan every year involves sifting through deductibles, provider networks and other arcane terms that can quickly scramble the brain. Don’t worry, though, help is available. It just may be harder to find this fall.

Associated Press: Enrollment beginning on Health Insurance Marketplace
Open enrollment begins Thursday on the Health Insurance Marketplace. The nonprofit organization Nebraska Appleseed says more than 88,000 Nebraskans found their insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace during the 2017-18 open enrollment period, with 90 percent receiving tax credits to make their plans more affordable.
