SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIOD FOR TAX SEASON: MARCH 15-APRIL 30, 2015
Special enrollment period (SEP) for individuals and families who did not have health coverage in 2014 and are subject to the fee or “shared responsibility payment” when they file their 2014 taxes in states which use the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces (FFM). This special enrollment period will allow those individuals and families who were unaware or didn’t understand the implications of this new requirement to enroll in 2015 health insurance coverage through the FFM.
NOTE: Members of federally recognized Tribes have special enrollment status, which means they can enroll in a Marketplace plan at any month.
