Haven’t thought about the health-care law for a while? Now’s the time.

Passed in 2010, the law requires most Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine. While many Americans get health coverage through their employers, those consumers who instead have insurance through the law’s federal or state online marketplaces, or exchanges, can re-enroll starting Nov. 15. Subsidies are available to help many people afford coverage, and some states have expanded their Medicaid programs to provide coverage for low-income people.
