Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Period Closing Today

March 31st marks the closing of the open enrollment period for private health insurance provided through the marketplaces.  The Department of Health and Human Services has estimated that over 6 million people have signed up for health insurance coverage.  Some people may qualify for a special extended enrollment period if they have had problems signing up for insurance coverage before the deadline.  If you think you qualify but haven’t been notified, you can ask for a special enrollment period by calling the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 and letting them know your circumstances.  The call center will ask a series of questions to see if you qualify.  Make sure you have evidence that you’ve tried to enroll but were not successful.
