ACA enrollment extension granted to some individuals

While the official deadline for enrollment in Qualified Health Plans (QHP) under the Affordable Care Act remains Monday, March 31st, some individuals may be granted an extension.  HHS and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), who oversee the federal exchange at, will allow individuals who start their application by March 31st but are unable to finish, to complete their enrollment in the first weeks of April.  Beyond that, only individuals who qualify for a Special Enrollment Period may enroll in a qualified health plan between April 1st and November 15th.  You can read a more detailed article on the ACA enrollment extension, here.

Open Enrollment Deadline Nearing: March 31st, 2014

The Open Enrollment period for Qualified Health Plans comes to a close on March 31st, 2014. What exactly does that mean for you?  If you haven’t enrolled in a qualified health plan by March 31st you may be subject to tax penalties of $95 per adult/$47.50 per child (maximum of $285 per household) or 1% of your household income, whichever is the greater of the two. If you miss the deadline, you will have to wait until November 15th (unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period), the proposed date when open enrollment begins for 2015.
