Enrollment open again for ACA
By Chris Erickson
The deadline for re-enrollment is looming for the Affordable Care Act’s second year and more options are available for those with or without insurance.
Coal Country Community Health Center’s Outreach and Enrollment Specialist Megan Dierks said that the problems of last year’s Healthcare Exchange roll-out have been lessened. The deadline was coming up quickly, Dierks added, and would take place Dec. 15.
“In order to receive insurance coverage effective Jan 1, 2015, you must enroll & pay your first month’s premium by Dec. 15,” she noted. “If you enrolled in health insurance through the Insurance Marketplace last year, you must re-enroll by Dec. 15 or risk losing your valuable tax credit and/or cost sharing benefits.”
