Open Enrollment is over – We can still help you get covered
Open enrollment is over. But if you were trying to enroll on February 15 and couldn’t finish, you may still be able to get coverage.
We know many of you worked hard to enroll in a plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Despite your best efforts, you may not have been able to complete your application and select a plan.
If that happened to you, don’t worry – you may still be able to get covered in 2015 if one of these applies to you:
- You tried to enroll in health coverage by February 15, but you didn’t complete your enrollment because of longer than normal wait times at the Marketplace Call Center on February 13, 14 and 15.
- You tried, but weren’t able to enroll in health coverage by February 15 because of a technical issue on HealthCare.gov, such as being unable to submit your application because verification sources were down.
To finish your enrollment, you must attest that one of the statements above is true. This opportunity will only be available until February 22, 2015. You should enroll in coverage as soon as you can. To complete your application, log in to your Marketplace account on HealthCare.gov, or contact the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 to complete your enrollment over the phone.
Note: This opportunity is intended to help you enroll for 2015 for the first time. If you are already enrolled in a plan through the Marketplace, you can’t switch to a different plan now unless you have recently experienced a life change that grants a Special Enrollment Period.
