Despite the 45th President’s attempt to reduce the number of individuals to register by canceling Obamacare advertisements that were set to run within the next few days, reports show that more than 11.5 million registered by the start of the year.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump pulled ads that had already been paid for, including an ad worth about $5 million.

According to The New York Times, there are no exceptions to the enrollment deadline unless there’s a special circumstance, such as losing job-based coverage, marrying, or having a child. Reports also state that those who register by the deadline will receive coverage by March 1.
However, there is a possibility that coverage could be disrupted later this year, depending on a pending lawsuit filed by Republican members of the House of Representatives a few years ago.
“It’s a good idea to take advantage of the opportunity to enroll now,” Elizabeth Hagan, senior policy analyst, told The New York Times.
