Good luck with your health insurance
To the editor,
The Obamacare Open Enrollment ends March 31, 2014 (maybe). If you have not enrolled by then you will have to wait for the next open enrollment that was scheduled to start Oct. 1, 2014, through Dec. 7, 2014, will now be Nov. 15, 2014, through Jan. 15, 2015, this is the current “proposed” enrollment.
However, there are Qualified Life Events that can be exceptions to the rules of enrollment. Examples: marriage, divorce, new child, loss of job, moving to new state, etc. PPACA “… you can’t buy insurance inside or outside the marketplace until the next Open Enrollment.” If you’re not enrolled be prepared to pay $95 or 1 percent of your income as a “tax penalty”. Good luck.
