Open enrollment 2019 has begun, and it will be over before you know it on Dec. 15.

This is the first Affordable Care Act sign-up season conducted entirely by the Trump administration, and it’s the first one without an individual mandate penalty.

But the exchanges are stable, plan participation is up, and premiums even dropped a tad on average.
