The Open Enrollment period for 2015 health coverage is over.
For most people, the last day to enroll in a 2015 Marketplace plan was February 15, 2015. But in some cases you may still be able to get coverage this year.
Still need coverage for 2015?
The Open Enrollment Period for 2015 coverage is over. You can still get coverage two ways:
If you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a life change like marriage, having a baby, or losing other coverage
Through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which provide coverage to families and individuals with limited income or other reasons.
Small businesses can apply for SHOP coverage for their employees any time, all year.
Members of federally recognized tribes and Alaska Native shareholders can enroll in Marketplace coverage any time of year. There’s no limited enrollment period for members of these groups, and they can change plans as often as once a month.
If none of these options works for you, you can enroll in 2016 health coverage during the next Open Enrollment period. The Open Enrollment period for 2016 is November 1, 2015 to January 31, 2016.
The fee is higher in 2015 than it was in 2014.
