Still Need Health Insurance?

getCoveredAmerica_t750x550Even though open enrollment is over for this year, it may not be too late to get coverage. Did you know that many life events, like getting married, having a baby, or losing your current health plan, will qualify you for a special enrollment period? You can see the full list of life events on our Insurance Enrollment page.

Even if you don’t have a qualifying life event, you may still be able to enroll. Did you have to pay the fee for being uninsured with your 2014 taxes? If yes, you still may be able to get 2015 coverage if you:

  • Aren’t currently enrolled in coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace for 2015,
  • Paid the fee with your 2014 federal income tax return, for not having health coverage in 2014, and
  • Were confused or didn’t know about open enrollment dates for 2015 coverage, and need another opportunity to enroll in coverage for the remainder of 2015.

This special enrollment period will start on March 15 and end April 30, 2015. For more information, call 1-800-FOR-MFHS (extension 244) or email getinsurance@mfhs.org.
