Covered California: There’s Still Time to Enroll in 2015

A couple of weeks ago, Covered California announced an open enrollment extension for certain eligible people. According to the Covered California website, the exchange is offering a “time-limited opportunity to enroll during special enrollment for consumers who did not realize there was a tax penalty in 2014 or learned they may face a penalty in 2015.”

In other words: there is still time to enroll in 2015 if you are uninsured. This extension will run from now (February 23rd, 2015), until April 30th, 2015. This enrollment period is called a “special enrollment period.”


In order to enroll in this “special enrollment period,” the applicant will need to attest on the application that they did not realize that there was a tax penalty for being uninsured. There will be a new drop down option on the application that is called “Informed of Tax Penalty Risk.”

Avoid tax penalties in 2015! They’re getting bigger. Contact a Covered California “Certified Insurance Agent” today, to help you enroll. We’re certified at 1(800) 617-0089.
