New Marketplace Special Enrollment Period for Tax Season

Did you have to pay a fee for not having health insurance when you filed your 2014 taxes?

You may still be able to get 2015 coverage if you:

    • Aren’t currently enrolled in coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace for 2015,
    • Paid the fee with your 2014 federal income tax return, for not having health coverage in 2014, and
    • Were confused or didn’t know about open enrollment dates for 2015 coverage, and need another opportunity to enroll in coverage for the remainder of 2015.


This special enrollment period will start on March 15 and end April 30, 2015.
