The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that, for some, the Health Insurance Marketplace enrollment deadline is extended to February 22, 2015.
Coverage will have a March 1, 2015, effective date.
The extension is in response to technical issues enrollers may have experienced as well as extended call wait times on February 15 and the days leading up the deadline.
CMS conditions for an enrollment extension:
Are not currently enrolled in coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace (FFM );
Have not been terminated from coverage purchased through the FFM during the 2015 Open Enrollment period; and,
Attest that you attempted to enroll during the annual Open Enrollment period but did not complete the process (referred to as being "in line")by February 15, 2015, because of a technical issue with HealthCare.gov that prevented you from completing enrollment by February 15, OR that you had an extensive call center wait on February 13, 14 or 15, 2015.
If you hit a roadblock trying to enroll last week and would like assistance, contact one of our enrollers at 913.333.3389 or toll-free, 855.750.9441.
To your health!
