Affordable Care Act Deadline Extended

November 01, 2013

By Amy De Vore+

Due to glitches with the website, the Obama Administration has extended the Affordable Care Act enrollment deadline to March 31, 2014. Wait, you might be thinking, wasn’t that already the deadline? Let us explain, that was the previous deadline for the open enrollment, but if you had waited till the tail end you would have still owed a penalty for the months you went uninsured.

Now you can enroll in one of the ACA metal plans known as the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum plans, an off-Exchange plan, or a multi-state plan until March 31st for a May 1st start date and not pay an ACA penalty.

The next open enrollment for new health coverage begins October 15, 2015. Applications must be submitted before December 7, 2015 to start a plan in 2016. If you are looking to get covered in 2015 you still have a few options. See link below:
