PHOENIX - If you're planning to select an Affordable Care Act health insurance plan for 2019, act fast - open enrollment closes Saturday.

Roughly 11 million Americans have individual or family plans through healthcare.gov or their state exchange, and if you're one of them and you do nothing, you'll be automatically renewed into your current health plan.

The Trump administration said in a statement this week that "our primary goal is to provide a seamless open enrollment experience for HealthCare.gov consumers and ensure that those who want coverage offered through the (program) can enroll in a plan".

Plans selected now begin coverage on January 1, as long as the first premium is paid.

CMS has sent more than 3.2 million outreach emails to help Navigators, Certified Application Counselors, agents and brokers who assist HealthCare.gov consumers with enrollment.
