2015 Open Enrollment
The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015.
If you have not enrolled in a plan by February 15, 2015, you cannot enroll in a plan until the following year. This does not apply however to those who qualify for a special enrollment period due to a qualifying life event. These would include marriage, birth or adoption of a child, or loss of other health coverage.
If you don’t have health coverage during 2015, you may have to pay a fee. The fee in 2015 is higher than it was in 2014 — 2% of your income or $325 per adult/$162.50 per child, whichever is more.
Enrollment and coverage start dates
During Open Enrollment, if you enroll:
- Between the 1st and 15th days of the month, your coverage starts the first day of the next month.
- Between the 16th and the last day of the month, your coverage starts the first day of the second following month. So if you enroll on March 16, your coverage starts on May 1.
