The answer is pretty quickly. With the creation of the Internet has come the ability to shop and enroll for health insurance in the blink of an eye (well, maybe more like 100 blinks).

How long it takes to enroll all depends on where you buy your health insurance, but say you buy your insurance through us, KindHealth. It will take you roughly five minutes to search for plan, apply for one and receive confirmation of enrollment.

Now, depending on when you purchased your insurance, you may not actively have insurance for a few days or a few weeks (as in the case with HealthCare.gov). Your plan might start on the 1st of the next month.

In other words, if you need insurance for an upcoming appointment, it’s important not to wait until the last moment. Apply for insurance now so you can have active insurance as soon as possible.
